Gator,
What prop shaft are the Hydromotive 5-blades set up for? PM me a price for the pair.

Gato, How much for the 34 Herrings? those might be good for everyday props, You know pull the kids on the tube and stuff

I have a set of 36 B1 and I can spin the hell of of them. I am assuming that 35 or 36 5 blades would be right for when I want to go fast.

Michael, We are labbing the sportmasters now. I used to run 114 max light and 70 degrees with b1 34 labs at 5650 with stock lowers. I cracked 4 lowers from the side torque from the high X dimension.

The (kilo props) 15.75 x 34 outboard 3 blades burned a ton corning on plane and vibrated the whole boat all the way up to top end, and ran about 1 or 2 mph less than the lab Bravos.

How are your props running? Did I send you these wheels?

Thanks, John

John B yes you did send me the 15.75x34 3blades. They were of course a to big for my little fishing boat motors. 104mph at only 5800rpm Just got them back from Throttle Up cut down to 15'' diameter. Have not had a chance to run them hard yet. The previous set of 15x34s ran 109 at 6200rpm. Those props are a little unusual as they had quite a bit of rake twisted in to them. So I am not sure how they will work. I did try a set of labed 34 bravos lent to me by Shawn. Boy they put my boat right to sleep. Had to trim motors way up to break the props loose just to get on plane and only would run about 102mph. Anyhow thanks Shawn.
Did you get the motor problem fixed in your formula? Hope those sportmasters cases slove your lower unit problem. What is involved in Labing a lower?
Good luck and keep us posted Michael

hydromotive does not make there own props; they're re-boxed. Question. Are merc and hydromotive buying the same 5 blade and reselling it?

Labbing sportmasters: The skegs on these things is like a 1/4" piece of aluminum beveled on both ends, kinda like the propeller on a tug boat. We are duplicating the shape and taper of a stock Bravo skeg including the depth.

Michael, We got the Formula fixed. I'm not sure which problem you are asking about.

Hey John When I talked with you in the late fall I believe you were having power or rpm issues with one motor. 500efi Right?
