Anyone with a 98-99 Convinsor 283 that provide some input on props and ride quality?
A friend bought one from Pier 57 and they are trying to get the boat to settle down. In rough water the boat rides terrible with a 4 blade prop, the bottom slaps the water all the time. If he uses a three blade Mirage plus it rides a little better but blows the prop out of the water in rough water. When this happens they have to come to a complete stop to get started again and the ride is still not that great for a boat this size. If he uses the tabs at all it blows the prop out even worse, if he trims the drive it does the same thing.
Single HP500 carb motor
1.5 bravo drive
Very small trim tabs
Cudy has the following options Fridge sink holding tank, tank was empty. Only providing this information because of the weight.
Anyone else run into anything like this with this model boat?
