    I have a 1992 caravelle 17.5 foot boat with a 4 cylinder 2.5L mercruiser the motor is a 1985 i bought the boat took it out on the lake and it is really slow and does not plane out i was looking at the out drive and it is a alpha one but it has a v8 sticker my motor is a 4 cylinder i heard there is different gears for the size of the motor would that make my boat slower? I have another alpha one upper drive out drive with no stickers on it how can i tell what size motor the extra one is for? and whats a good prop pitch for this boat? thanks
