Default Finally bought a boat!

After searching for over 2 months I finally got a boat that I really like and will work great for my family. Its a 1993 Baja 24 outlaw with an efi 502 and gil exhaust. Trailer is horrible so I ordered an aluminum one today. Boat did really good on its first day out. The boat does not like the prop though. Its a 22p bravo 1 4 blade. It porpoises like crazy if I even attempt to trim the drive up and will still do it a little bit with no tab and drive fully tucked. HUGE thanks to member mickeymcclgn. He has helped me through this whole process and actually sent me the link to this boat I bough. He has a mirage and a mirage + prop we are trying out tomorrow evening. I will try to post some pics.

Thanks shooter. It needs some TLC due to the PO being an idiot, but nothing major. Had a blast yesterday. Will be adding hydro steering, swim platform, new trailer (Already ordered), better prop, and making my own dash. Let the money pit start to fill lol

Thanks guys. I know the saying. This will be my 5th boat. I started with a 15' ft tri hull, then a 23' CC trophy, crownline CR250, 6 meter century riveria, and now the Baja. The Baja is by far my favorite out of them all. I plan on doing what I do with every other toy I have. I will put between 6-8 times as much money into as I can get out of it, and I'm ok with that. I just like to go fast and have fun. I know it costs money and t will be done a little at a time like all my other chit. Thanks for all the congrats. It came with a gopro mount already on the windshield, that means the hero 3 gets some boat action.

Congrats on your new boat, I just purchased a 24 outlaw myself a few weeks ago and I'm in love with it. I'm bummed to hear you don't like the 22 pitch bravo 1 though, that's the exact prop I was planning on getting this week to help me plane a little quicker in mine. I have a 23 pitch mirage plus now that seems to offer pretty good top speed (63.4 gps) but I'd like a better holeshot.

I have read good things about the hydro 4 blade. Mickey is going to look at some things tomorrow to see if there is something else causing it to ride like that. I can't blame it all on the prop yet, but we'll see. I don't know the history on the prop either. May have had some work done to it.
