    Anyone local have some B1 props?

    We are looking to prop test now with the new engine and was wondering if anyone local had some B1 props they'd be willing to let me try out. We are looking to try a 26, 27, and 28 pitch. If anyone can help out, we'd appreciate it. We can return the favor however required (short of touching someone inappropriately!)

    Thanks!!

    I'll check with Banana Boy! I forgot his stuff is torn up. We ran her hard on Saturday, but the speed isn't there yet. Not enough prop. It made a lot of noise and felt faster, but 72.5 on the GPS was the best we saw. I think Brad may come down this weekend and ride with me to check fuel pressure and make sure everything is golden.

    I also think I may not be trimming enough. How high can one trim a bravo without potentially damaging it. I try to keep it down to where the rooster tail is minimal. Is it safe to trim it out to more of a tail?

    Thanks jryan! I believe Pat McPherson on the board is sending me a 28 Mach this week to try out. How is the Hydro on pitch? Are they heavy or light? I'm thinking a 29 might be just a tad too much, but I guess we won't really know until we start trying them. I may take you up on that 29! The Hydros have the hub built in correct? Is it for a standard Bravo One shaft size?

    you can trim it out until it feels loose. On my fountain 24 I could feel it get loose when it was over trimmed. You can trim more with a 4 or 5 blader for sure but be careful in that boat. Have Brad run it with you so he can feel it. I would try trimming it out at slower speeds to see how it reacts.
    One thing to remember it you may be just simply running out of hull. That boat above 80 would be scary.... and I wouldnt want to run it trimmed too far out. Your main difference in that boat should be mid range and not top end. 0-75 in a few less seconds is priceless and I would doubt you will run WOT much during the summer anyways... too rough.
