What props are you running with 500 efi,s. 30 bravo? How does a hydromotive 4 blade work? Do they pick up any speed spinning the props in instead of out?

I don't have 500's in mine so I can't say prop size for yours, but I would guess a 30 or 32 4 blade. I prefer running a 5 blade ( I am running a 5 blade 32 with a 1.34 imco scx drive). I tried briefly turning the props in and it definitely gave more stern lift and maybe a little on top end, but the control around the docks wasn't good enough to make up for the little performance. I am currently turning them out for better dock manners. Sorry I couldn't help more.

2000 with 500efi's with Vortec S/C's (700's), new IMCO SCX drives, full cabin (bed, bathroom, sink) which I have never used the toilet or sink. Aluminum trailer. Beautiful shape. It sits inside my garage whenever not being used. Just had a survey done 2 months ago and everything came back perfect. $90k. Let me know if you would be interested in more info.

I really only wanted to spend up to 70k If you have room to move shoot me a email [email protected] and I would probably come look at it.

Sorry, that won't be possible. Good luck in your search. You will love the Slingshot.
