Default Raylar & BBlades Thank you!!

Wholly %^$*!! Saw 86.4mph today in the bay!

If you didn't already know, I have a little 27 Fountain that ran 68+ when I bought it. Got that prop back from BBlades this last week and wow. Thing is I'm not even sure if that's a "top speed" cause Eddie (Westcoast) said it kept goin'. He was driving at the time... Even if it tops out a 86mph and I never see any more, she had me at 83. We had another great day.

Thanks to Bret Anderson for selling me a smokin' prop and thanks to Raylar for making it possible to turn it.

Well come to think of it I never got to ask you much about your rig at the poker run. How's it running? Does it have the 502 in it?

You've gotta have some room cause the 29 hull is about 2mph faster than the 27.

Don't be jealous - just buy some parts!!!!

Default Does it Run!!

Jason:

Congratulations! I think I told you how important getting that prop dialed in just right would be and congratulations to Brit at BBlades for his prop mastery!
Thank you for your patronage and support and I know you will have many fun and reliable hours in that boat with the powerplant Raylar has built for you. Great job on the paint and dress up to the Raylar HO600, its as awesome looking as any marine performance motor out there!
Be safe, have fun and enjoy and keep that pcoket rocket on the bottom!
By the way SDFever puts about 400 hours per year in big blue Pacific water on his gorgeous Fountain so he knows about reliability!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

The best I have realistically seen is 72 on gps, but my fuel sending unit is broke and I thought my fuel tank was empty but it was full, so I think as I burn some off I will see 75 I hope.
