Default Houston Propeller Thumbs Up!

I had Darin at Houston Prop do the labbing on my 28p Bravo prop. It took a couple of tries to get it dialed in, but once it was it ran great. I ended up improving my hole shot and picking up a solid 2 mph on the top end. This is on a boat that was doing around 67-68 mph and is now at about 70. My mid range is only off by about 2 mph which I think is a pretty good trade for the higher top end. Anybody looking to improve performance by a couple mph should start with your prop. Darin said he would work my prop until I was happy and he did. His number is 281-580-7767.

Send that prop to Darin @ Houston Propeller. I've been on all the websites and spent the whole season reading about all the success stories with Darin, debating on what to do. I finally broke down and sent in my 23P Mirage off my 2001 25 Baja Outlaw with a Bravo I and 502 MPI. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The hole shot was like I had the tabs down and the blowout was very minimal. Top end found 5150 on the tach and a nice 68-69. With an aggressive trim I could find the rev limiter. Prior to that I was running 4900-4950 on a good day and never saw much more than 66. I have to say, that after many hours tinkering around with synthetics, airflow, fuel pressure, etc the money was well spent with Darin.

Above & beyond the prop performance, dealing with Houston Propeller was extremely pleasant. Great communication and friendly, knowledge staff. I can tell you that once the guys on Blewes see his work, a number of props will be heading Darin's way.

THANKS AGAIN DARIN!!! Your service is the best!

at this point we are trying our best on two of of the BEST SITES AROUND IN THE BOATING BUSINESS.

OFFSHORE-ONLY.COM KEEPS ME BUSY

TEAM BAJA MARINE.COM KEEPS ME BUSY

THE BOAT DEALERS KEEP ME BUSY

THE OVER THE COUNTER BUSINESS KEEPS ME BUSY

THE PHONE AND E-MAILS KEEP ME BUSY

THE WIFE KEEPS ME BUSY



I, DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER YET,BUT IT WILL NEVER SURPASS THE TWO SITES , I LOVE,

BUT WHEN IT DOES COME OUT ?

THE SITE WILL BE OPEN TO "ALL" OFFSHORE-BOATERS.

THANKS JIMMY!!! FOR KEEPING US IN MIND.
