Default I know its a crownline but i need some advice!

Hi guys, My close uncle Chris just picked up a small 2002 20ft lpx with a 350mag in it. It has an alpha drive on it and i was wondering if it seems like it should have a bravo instead? Thanks for looking~

Nope, thats a fine pairing if it is being left as stock, my brother has the same rig.

Not necessarily. I had an older one (1995) with a 350 mag and an alpha. Never had any problems with that alpha either.

The Alpha is offered with the 350 MAG. In that small of a boat, it will be fine. As for what others are seeing for speeds, go to Crownline's website and register in their user forum. It's free and the folks there are very friendly and helpful. You'll get plenty of responses to a post there about a 202's performance.

Add one more "it will be fine" to the list.

Good match for the boat.
