Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
Speed can vary widely, as much as 15 MPH, and it depends on the propeller that is installed on the boat. Stainless props are faster than aluminum props. High performance props are faster than basic props. And on top of that propellers can be chosen to give a boat a top speed, or give a boat a better fuel economy.
That being said, are you trying to solve a problem, or were you just looking for a ballpark?

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

There isn't any such thing as a stock prop.

Is this a boat you own or a boat you are thinking of buying?

Do you know what the full throttle rpms of the engine are when the boat is at top speed?
