The really nice part about stainless is the ability to adjust pitch up or down . so if you find a prop that's used it can be pitched to hit your sweet spot in rpms. where I fish , in the marshes of sw Louisiana . stainless is the norm cause alum wears and is a lot softer , easier to bend or break . ...
i'd start with the cav plate even with the bottom . If you are running an aluminum prop there isn't much you can do to it, in my opinion the alum prop is a spare . The stainless has more versatility and performance options and easier to solve prop issues ,ie adding and subtracting pitch and cup for ...
I agree with the transom mount not holding up on the front . Pain to deploy if you move a lot , bow mount is a lot easier . I think If the motor head isn't laying horizontal it will beat the seals out ,a friend of mine trashed 2 motors with water in them , he's had better luck with a bow mount
I have an outboard jet lower unit, about 10 hrs run time w/new stainless impeller . Fits 2 stroke 05 59 ci 40 Merc tiller short shaft . I paid $1800 w/aluminum impeller then changed to $300+ stainless $1500
well I had an issue with my motor guide quick release. It kept breaking the lip in front off . Every time it broke I would have to buy a whole new one not just the part that broke .... so a trip to the local machine shop cured it !
a good start would put the prop shaft parallel to the hull surface . . its a real balancing act to get everything right . cav plate even or up a little from the bottom of the transom . the boat will show ya where it wants to run . use a mph app for your phone or gps and watch speed move it one hole ...

Sometimes hooks can be caused by trailering , make sure the transom has support under it when its on the trailer otherwise it may hook again ,rollers will hook an aluminum boat, carpeted bunks properly placed will not
odyssey batteries are nice ,I have 2 sets of pc 1200's on 2 dif boats for 24 v 82 lb motor . I can get 2 days fishing out of em and they charge pretty quick , they will take a 40 amp charge rate . My old fishin bud has a pc 925 on a 12 volt 55lb motor he fishes all day in the marsh with that little ...
Spray the carpeted bunks with silicone spray and you will be surprised how easy it slips off , just don't unhook it at steep ramps. I wrap the rope around the winch upright once ,unhook it unwrap it and off it goes . Not too fond of rollers , bunks spread the load better . to get your boat a little ...
