I am wondering how fast will the Suzuki 140 push the 1960? With what prop/diameter/pitch?

Update... I bought a 1960 BB with Yamaha 150 2-stroke with 50 hours on rig. The boat does ride very well in a chop. My only negative is that I need 2.5 to 3 foot of water to get on step. I get 52 mph at wot (5500 rpms). I cruise 40 mph while turning 4500 rpms. The boat definately meets my expectations.

I own a 2008 1960 and run marsh and pelto areas. I've been in the same areas in Express, Cajun, And Champion boats. The 1960 is by far the driest ride of any of them.Evidently the way the hull is designed it throws the spray out from the side of the hull instead of up along it.
Double check ALL electrical connections from battery to under console. I had a few that were loose on mine.
Had to have a new axle put on the trailer after about 1000 miles. Inside of both tires worn down. New axle is a little better, only one tire wearing. Will probably try the steel belted tires.
Overall love the boat. Not too big for one man, and not too small for three to fish.
I also run a 115 Yamaha with 20" factory prop. Tops out at 41-44 gps at 5500rpm

I came real close to getting the 1960 . I got the 2170 and I'm glad I did especially yesterday . Storm came up , we could see it but the fish were biting went to cross a big lake to get back to the marina and it was rough . I could feel the difference with the boat stradelling 2 or 3 waves . Alot smoother ride than the 19'
