I have a pair of 19" counter rotating Mercury Enertia ECO props shipping to Max to test with the 27. We could not prop the boat before full load and the T-Top were installed. We find that a few hundred hours loosens the engines up and can mean an inch of pitch.
The 27 would fit in the cockpit of the 39, but the displacement to length ratio of the 39 is less. The structural weight of the 39 is of course more than the 27, but all of the other outfitting is basically the same. The sum is proportionally less.

I had really interesting conversations with the Mercury applications engineers at the show.
Can't wait to run the boat.
