    The boat is a 17' Basstracker. For about the past month my rpm's are running 6,000 at only 20 mph. The boat will only run 32 mph. I have a SS Vengence 13 P prop. Not for sure what is going on? It almost sounds like the thing is about to blow up. The boat make a lot of noise anyway, but seems to have gotten louder. Any suggestions???

    Yup, that's what it sounds like. A spun prop hub.

    Get it to a prop shop or get a new prop.
