Hi all,

Thank you for all the input back in the spring. I finally pulled the trigger on my new boat. I ended up going with a new 2022 Lund 1875 Impact XS from Mattas in Junction.
Here is a pic of the new boat.
I also have a couple Powell questions. The boat was pre-rigged with Humminbird Helix 7's at the bow and console and I was wondering if anyone was running the new Lakemaster Western States VX premium charts at Powell? I had the original Lakemaster Western States charts in my last f.f.'s and was curious if the VX premium was worth the additional cost?
The other question I had is does anyone have a similar setup as far as boat/motor? This one has the 150 ProXS and has a 19P 3 blade stainless prop on it. When I took delivery of the boat, the dealer took me out on a private lake in Junction and on the test run it hit 6,000 rpm with very little fuel and 2 people in it (no additional weight/gear). I wasn't driving so I'm not sure if he had more throttle left or if the throttle range was maxed out (Mercury manual says 6,000 is max rpm for the ProXS). I will run it full of fuel/gear at Rifle this weekend to see if the 19p will work at that elevation. I am planning on a trip to the north end starting Labor Day weekend and will be getting a spare prop anyway but I was thinking that I may need to try a 21p or a 4 blade. Thanks for the input

You're likely propped just fine for Powell. Just watch yout rpms and don't overrev. The added weight for fuel and gear will compensate some for the lower elevation at Powell. As for a spare prop, if you're happy with your current prop I would consider a lower cost aluminum one for a spare. If you want a spare stainless, consider the Quicksilver line as it makes good props at a good price.

Brad and Greg have always been great.
I just went to Greg’s funeral less than 2 weeks ago.
