Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. There is no way to directly answer that without knowing which propeller you have installed in the boat, and at which rpms the boat is up on plane. I can give you a round a bout answer, but I can't give you a specific answer unless I know at what rpm your boat planes at. Do you know the minimum rpms the engine needs to be in order for the boat to stay up on plane?
