20-60 calls per day, 1-2 dozen emails per day, multiple PM's, 4 web sites to maintain and over 100 props on the shelf. Fortunately I have a assistant in the office and a few good men in the propeller and machining / metal fab shop to help. However, I'm the only guy who answer the propping and set up tech questions and my typing has a 20% slip number. LOL

I'll try to do better!

What email was your? I'll get to it immediately.

Brett, you need to get one of those curved key boards, it will reduce your slip and give you a better top end and hole shot.

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the chuckle....nice to see people have a sense of humour. My email was through your business web site, questions on the '03 powerquest 280 silencer with 496 ho, 24 and 26 pitch props. The other thing is the 26 is labbed and I think a little bit more bow lift is needed......how can this be done??:cool-smiley-027

Sorry for the delay.

I have a 17x27 4 blade for testing.

We can definately add bow lift to the Bravo 1. Adding rake via tip cup works quite well. It's a matter of the correct amount in the correct location per the application.

Thanks again for your paitence!

Brett

Hi Brett,
Thanks for the response....the 03' 280 silencer that I have runs too flat in my opinion and needs quite a bit of trim thus blowing a rooster tail and loosing grip with the water. If you work your magic by adding bow lift to the prop will that get the bow up out of the water without needing as much trim???? Thats how I interpret this.....I would like to send you a new Bravo 1 that I have to get labbed and some magic massaged into it.....whats the turnaround time????

Yes we can add the bow lift during the Labbing process. We have been doing this to Baja props for many years at different levels. We did it when I was at Merc Racing as early as 1996 but didn't advertise it. Now people in the industry refer to it as a Baja cup as if it was something new. We are now implementing it into many other applications as needed. It can be done differently depending on the needs. Too much can actually be a reverse in peformance.

Lead times 3.5 weeks
