    Dave R; The measurement you ask for would be impossible to give because it would depend on what trim position the motor is in. It would cause the front of the lower unit to be at different distances from the rear of the pad. My River Rocket has a built in setback of 12 inches, from edge of inset pad bottom to rear of setback. Richard

    Anthony SS I have a bunch of different props. Depending on conditions and what I'm after, my favorite is a 22 ET. For a day of cruising I use a 28 ET. My Yamaha drag props 22 and 24, don't seem as efficient as the ET's. I have a 14.5 32 Lab Cleaver that is a good prop if you want to take the chance of killing yourself going for the really high numbers. The 28 lab cleaver is also a decent all around prop. My fingers are getting numb typing this....its 59 degrees in my house and I REFUSE to put on the heat because after all, this is FLORIDA !!! Richard

    Rob; I have a manual jackplate with 4" of set back and a drag SS with an additional 2" built in.....for a total of 6" on my River Rocket center steer. I run 3/4 to 7/8" above the pad and never had to trim the motor beyond the point where it is exactly parallel to the boat bottom. As a matter of fact, I find that when launching, the boat does not have to be trimed in at all. It launches best when the prop shaft is parallel to the bottom. I hear about so many STV owners complaining about the midrange porposing. I have never experienced this problem with my setup. Driver weight probably has more to do with setup problems than anything else. I weigh 165 lbs.
