Use the search function, here is a quick find on how to measure for a bravo boat


This can come in handy when trying to measure your X or your propshaft depth since it can be "awkward" especially by yourself.

Measure to the bottom of the transom assy and add 9.25" and that is your X. Now subtract your X from 21.825" and that will be your prophaft depth.

Example:

From the bottom of my boat to the transom plate is 7.875". Add 9.25" to that to get an X of 17.125". Subtract that from 21.825" to get 4.7" propshaft depth.

I mesured from the bottom of the transom plate to bottom of the hull and I get 13.5 add 9.25 and come up with 22.75. subtract the larger from the smaller and get I guess a .925 sound right ? Its a staggered boat with -2 sportmasters and 18.25 propshaft centers. thanks dean

Other option here, jot down your serial number and call Fountain for a copy of your original performance report. It will have the X right on it.

Your propshaft depth would be roughly 1" above the hull with the shorties. Did you measure with a straightline OFF the hull and get 13.5 from botttom of transom assemblie to the hull? Mine is about 2" below give or take I cant remember

Yes straightedge off the hull and directly up to another staightedge, the boat was origanaly built with tripples and fountain rerigged it in 08, I knew it was high but I just wanted to see what kind of number I had. thanks again, dean
