I think he had a moment of acceleration clarity when he was getting off the floor from gigging it and torqueing the boat over on the bow rail.... "Eddie, What da Phuck did you put back dere"?!!

It's a shame, because the boat runs 94 mph at 4000 rpm and thats about all you can safely do. Their is so much left that you can't use. He should have just had me build 750 hp for the boat. Any help would be great. Thanks, Eddie.

Eddie I was told that Eric's boat had the bottom mods?


I would think modifiying the strake would help with stearn lift,settling the boat some,There is some picks fountain40icbm posted of the bottom in the Hustler thread.Only the newer ones can be cut on.Mine needs it

Eric's boat has only about 18 in. of the strake removed, from the transom. Joe said that we can remove the rest if we want. The boat has entirely to much stern lift.

This makes a difference when the boat gets going over 100 as the bottom is lifting out from under the standard side by side center line drives where as with the stagger the propellers are still in the water.

Remember there is more than one way to skin a cat. The Black Cloud boat has side by side engines but it has stagger centerline drives.

Rik in your opinion what would make a bravo 388 like mine handle better above 100mph?

The props have been modified by BBlades as per Joe. Some of the trailing edge cup has been taken off to help reduce lift and they have been turned into round ears. They are the best props so far. They are 17x36, turned into 16.5x36 5 blade Mercs.

First, define better.

What are you hoping to achieve, in exact words.

The 388 was designed to run well with HP 500's and in its day was good at running with that power.

Now days, 500 hp is nothing and the boats are capable of going way faster.

The stern lift from the bottom that works so well at 80-82 works against it at 100-110.

What trim tabs do you have? Where do you run them?

What is your speed? Honestly?

Trying to get it to handle better,its porposing and will chine walk real easy above 97mph.I figure if I didnt have to conteract the chine walk it would be more efficient on the top end.Its doesn't like flat water,with a little chop its easier to drive and faster, 101 and a 102.2mph GPS. I have the 380's I used them at first and found not using them and balancing it by steering it (keeping it from chine walking)it was faster.I am having to over trim it which is making it porpos in the flater water to get the speed,if I trim down just a hair it will slow down.Its faster porposing.I guess I could be at a wall at a 100 with this set up?
