I'm no stranger to Triumph. Had a 215cc for a long time. Loved it. Just picked up a 235cc with only 66 original hours. It has a Suzuki DF250. It's brand new...

I'm not thrilled with fuel burn and hole shot. Flat water fully loaded I'm turning 5700 at 40 ish mph. My average mpg after a day off shore is 1.6 mpg. Hole shot is terrible. It's like it's propped way too tall. It has a 3x16x18.5 stainless Suzuki prop.

Anyone on here with a 235 / Suzuki DF250 using a 4 blade? Or a different 3 blade with better numbers than me? I'm about to try a PowerTech 3x16x18. I'm thinking a 4x15x18, or the Suzuki 3x16x17. Any ideas out there?

Thanks,

Martin
