Well Monty your liquid filled speedo is right on at 98mph...That's the number you can expect usuing a GPS turning that prop 7200...anyway that's what my prop calc indicates..I'm running a 97 Mariner that's stock but it turns a 30 cleaver at 7400 and that's good enough for me

GUYS,

I find the Gaff speedos to be very accuarate when comparing to GPS. The 120 mph unit which I ran was calibrated at 100 mph. So it was most accurate at speeds close to 100. The one time I verified by GPS it was only 1 mph optimistic...that was good enuff for me!!!

The Gaffrig in my boat (Anthonys old boat) seems to read 5mph high from 30-75mph.  At 95, it's only 3 high.  I'm swapping to a Gaffrig GPS speedo this time around.

Looks more like a Cadillac then a Meteor. :D

I think the Mercury Meteor was only sold in Canada at one time

Again...add some pickles to that thing it could be Euro ???

Good call on the motor Lloyd
