    Prop vs RPM

    Either the prop shop adjusted the pitch or cup, or you have a hub that is starting to slip. Either is a problem. The pitting sounds like cavitation. Left unchecked, it will destroy the prop. I would start by checking with the prop shop that did the repair job. brick

    To Forward Face or not, that is the question...

    Assume that, like us, you are in GA. All lakes in the state are dammed up rivers, with lots of stumps and stuff to hit after every rainstorm. The question is not “if” but “when” you hit something and damage the drive. Being that you are a new boater, pretty good odds that “when” happens soon and often. I understand the desire to go wake surfing. If that is key, I would pick a different boat. brick

    New Trailer Tires - Recommendations Needed

    Consider Goodyear Endurance trailer tires. I would not use “P” rated passenger tires on a trailer. Any tire over 5 years old should be replaced . And consider taking two spares brick

    Trailer Security

    How about leaving it hitched to the truck, and backed up against a wall or solid object? Or put “Bayliner” stickers on the trailer... brick

    best prop for 1997 Chaparral 1935 SS

    My 2nd Chaparral was a 1996 1930SST with the 5.7L and Alpha 1.62 drive. So the same setup you have. I ran a Stilleto 3 blade SS 14.25 X 19 inch pitch. Great performing @ 49 mph at 4600 RPM. I think Yamaha owns Stilleto now. Great boat, I kinda wish I still had mine... brick

    My Tennessee Trailers has discs on the rear axle only. Brakes and coupler are made by UFP. brick

    Single brakes in tandem axle

    As mentioned above, some states require brakes on all axles. So check. if you are going to upgrade, swap to disc brakes. Better performance and less maintenance than drums. brick

    236 ssx prop ?

    I would go for a set of 26’s. That will get you to about 5000 RPM @ WOT, and improve hole-shot. Surprised you can pull 4600 with 28’s... brick
