I finaly tried it on my Bullet............It sucks ! ....Boat just did'nt feel good at any speed.....Nothing major just not near the great handling im used to...Docking ? Forget about it !!! With the blowers surging you can't crank the wheel fast enough !!
Top Speed ? maybe a couple.....But i know i can't run the big stuff with any confidence........Maybe a calm lake boat...NOT a boat that sees Erie all the time. Here me Thrillseeker ??!!

Before you change anything you might want to post a picture of the back of your boat showing the props, drives, and everything else. A change in drives might also mean a change in the way the shifter cables are hooked up.

It had nothing to do with driving the boat

This thread is back again in 2015! Occasionally I read something online from 2007-2012 and think "this is outdated". Glad google pointed me to an OSO thread from 2003.

I just winterized today and heard about swapping props to make docking easier. Can't wait to try it out!
