Hi, new to the forum. I have a 99 outback LS with a 310 Indmar. Boat only goes about 43/44 mph. no skier. 40 w/ skier. would switching out the engine with something newer accommodate more speed or is the hull designed to achieve a max speed? Thanks.

you can change the prop, but why would you like it to go faster skiing. unless you have a heavy barefooter, the prop would be you best bet, call nettles props and they will set you up.

42 is nice for one foot toe holds

Tried it once behind, ok 'beside' a BlueWater I/O at 43 hanging off a boom. Dude told us you had to run that fast?

Serious pucker factor...
