Hey Tink,

Because you are wishing Whitely a Happy Birthday on an open forum, did you give Whitey your drives with the IMCO shorties for a Birthday present???

Happy Birthday Whitey!

Yea I gave him the use of them for about 2 hours of testing.

What we found out was that without more HP the drives wont help very much. The boat did handle better but didn't go any faster because of the drive ratio difference. Mine are 1.5 to 1 and his are 1.65 to 1. We needed a set of labbed 24 Bravo props.
Tried the drives on one of Dwights friends boat ( MORRIE- 29 MAGIC ) -- Same results Needs more HP to make the drive work properly

Thanks for the b-day wishes, I think I would rather have TBs engines than the drives.lol
Waterfoul I was hoping that saturday could have worked out for you at Hardy. Next time we are in town I will get in touch for dinner. Hopefully it will be for another boat trip.
