Default Anybody in Chicago area with 26" Bravo 1's

Is there anybody in the Chicago area with a set of 26" Bravo 1 props that I could borrow for a test. I have a set of 28" but they are a little to tall. I will pay for any damage incurred while I test my boat. If they work and are for sale I will buy them if the price is reasonable.

Call me at 847-902-9702 or email [email protected]


Thanks

Check with AirMarine. They have a demo program. They are located in Chicago at 57th and Central. They are across the street from Midway Airport.

Just so you know I changed from screen name from Bigwavz to Smitty. Make a note O.K. !!!

Thanks for the idea. I am kinda hoping there is someone closer to me who has a used set for sale.

I have the new boat running but am still dialing in a few things
in before I feel safe enough to go on the big lake. I will try to hook up with you in August. maybe for the airshow or something.

Take care,

Dave

I got a RH if you are not going to the Chain.

Fountainclimber-

I'll keep that in mind. I am looking for a set though as I have twins. I do run on the Chain and trust me after 14 years I know where and where not to go !!!

I have a set of 26s on my 40 Hustler. Not for sale, but I am sure we could hook up and get you a test. I keep the boat up at Northpoint. PM me and we can get these tested. What boat do you have?

I think they props are 100% stock.

Boomer 880--

Thanks. I have a 2000 36 Outlaw. I have 28's on it now and am running 80 mph at 4800 on GPS. My motors can go to 5500 and still make power so I am thinking that 26's would be better. I would hate to make you take those off the boat though since it is in the water now. Maybe we can hookup in a few weeks. I'll bring my boat over to Northpoint on a calm day and we can see what it will do.

Hey chi town guys, used to live in Hinsdale and moved west. Have become an artist and a big gallery in the city on michigan ave is having a big art opening for me, july 15:
http://atlasgalleries.com/

I can't bring my Scarab but if anyone of you are out on the lake that weekend I'd love a ride. I only had hydros when I lived there and then graduated from SIU and left for the west.
Thanks.

Dave..... Are you going to enter your 36 Outlaw in our Chicago Poker Run on July 23rd? We'd love to have you, and we know you'll have a great time.
