The problem is ..... it doesn't look any different than before the rebuild!
However, it sure feels different when you push the throttle

I am glad to hear you are back on the water!! As good as the boat ran before, I cant imagine how she preforms now!!

Hi Jason ..... hope all is well with you and your family.
This whole episode has been one of those events that you wish never happened, but when its over with, your sort of glad it did!

Your absolutely correct, your old 232 was always a pretty quick little boat with more than enough power to provide an exciting ride. Although I've only had it out for an hour since the rebuild, it feels like all areas of the power band have increased dramatically. Because I boat offshore, I prefer the grip and response of a 4-blade prop, yet the brief test run this past weekend made the 22p 4-blade cavitate like a 3-blade!
I had to feather to throttle in order to keep the boat hooked up no matter what speed I was running.

I am going to put on my Bravo/1 24p this weekend in the hopes of getting better grip
and more cruise efficiency, and at some point, looking back at 70!

Take Care
Bill
