Congrats!

Does your trailer clear the new prop?

stock oj 13x17 here and went to the acme. no more noise and the low end is amazing..
oj would have the same prop with the same holeshot, but it's amazing how much quieter the acme is :)

What year LSV do you have? Any trailer clearance issues?

i came from the stock oj. it was a dog out of the hole with any weight. I have no problems with clearance on my trailer at all. next up will be my PP stargazer install and then a new steering cable.

Anyone have any suggestions about how to lube the cable to make it last the season. I'd rather not waste any of my holidays working on the boat.. rather be in it on the water :)

here is a pic on the trailer. It doesn't look like much but there is close to 2 inches clearance between the bottom and the trailer

1235. the one from ed's prop test. it was a rebuild, but price was right and is as smooooooth as butta..
no clearance issues with my single axle trailer, and no shimmed bunks either. sure it's the slightly shallower 20ssv hull tho.

I did keep the 13x17 and it has seen duty once since when I hit a rock with the acme. was out for 5 days and headed to the lake one evening. used the old oj as a spare. it will remain a spare.
