          I have the same boat and engines but without the bracket. What's your cruising and WOT speed and what props are you running?

            My numbers so far (need to be confirmed manually)

            Props 3 blade 21M Saltwater Series

            1/2 tanks, 2 on board

            Might need to move up 1 hole, maybe 2 on bracket

            Getting about 1.6-1.8 Mpg best cruise (28 mph at around 3500 rpm)

            Top speed 54 mph on slick calm day and ideal trim

            Boat ride is nothing short of amazing, bracket has over 1k lbs of flotation by volume and she floats real nice. It does porpoise a little and therefore need trim tabs if I try to trim out motors. Gonna go down to Mirage 19 cupped and move motors up 1-2 holes. Wish me luck. For now we fish!

              I have Rev 4 17's and I have the engines in the highest position. WOT is 46mph at 5000 rpm. I don't have a bracket. This is full of fuel and 1-2 persons onboard. She rides great and pretty flat with these props.
