Default Bravo question

Does any one know anything about bravo 2 outdrives?
what they are generally used on ? I would asume heavier boats. I do know they have a very high ratio 2.20. and the prop shafts are huge.

I don't mean to sound ignorant but do these have any value
on a performance boat, and what kind of h.p. would they handle, & how about props with that large of a shaft. The reason I am asking is I have 2 brand new (never been bolted up) sitting here in my shop and it would be nice if they could be put to use on somthing that actually runs!!

Re: Bravo question

Many people with 27' -30' cabin Cruisers originally equipped with Bravo 1's are going with Bravo 2's as the boat handles better, planes better etc. It is not a high perf drive at all.
I sold one in the local paper to the first person who called. I bought another to flip because there is a market for them. They come in several gear ratios. heres the deal there is a letter stamped in the Driveshaft that goes into the coupler. This should be correct, if not changed ( I re-stamp when I change shaft) if it is marked C 2.20-1 , F 2.00-1, H 1.81-1 or T 1.65 -1. This is the final drive ratio at the propshaft. Hope this helps.
