I put about 300 hrs on my 1990 bravos with a pair of 640s in a 30' Sonic.

Not sure about the bravos, but I would have the same live jacket for my passenger as I had.

Since I've never seen a pic of your boat in the water, I'd say you might want to find some XR'S!!!

They'll be fine Gary. Keep driving that Bullet like you stole it!!!!!

I did OK with my Bullet (with 625's) and regular Bravos. I think that the reason that the Bullets do so well with drives is because of the very conservative X-diminsion. Good timing with the throttle arm also helps!
