Good news was I was just a few hundred yards from pier head so i just turned around and went back to the launch ramp on one motor
was no big deal

Half Nutz,

I changed props before i went out and since i had to much slip with the other ones i think these just finished the job on drives that had 390 hours on them

I redid the top half's of the engines this fall so all is good there this was the week link and i was half expecting it to happen

we will be back on the water next week

I am staying with the bravo 1's just putting in upgraded guts

will see how all goes after that

Marc

Nope, hoping for 1080 - 1100hp ( real #'s) should have'm back in about two weeks.

Activefun, Roger ( RHC) is one of the sickest people on this board He ( and poor Steff) run in ANYTHING ! Rain, cold, HUGE water....I think he's making up for not joining the Coast Guard when he had the chance

Half Nutz, Dan, you really didn't get in last weekend ? Stop waxing the damn thing and go break something !

Marc, hope the rebuild works for ya, my personal experience and what I've witnessed, is once they fail the chase never seemed to stop except with new assemblies.....for a while

Nope didn't get in (still waxing!!!!)


I will verify that RHC will boat in anything! He's a little loopy.

Marc,

Don't listen to Jim "the glass is half empty" Deitz!

I had to rebuilt a bravo on my saber w/500's and 10 minutes after I mounted the drive we ran an 80 mile poker run, and I ran the crap out of the boat!!!

That drive now has 200 hours on it and no problems!!

The funny part was the guy who built the drive was with me and was screaming at me because I wasn't "breaking in the drive" properly. Oh well if it was going to break it was going to break then!


Dan
