I'd scan the engines to find out the rpm history. This will tell you how they have been run. As long as they haven't been run real hard, you should be fine to go at least 300 hours.

That is good news for him and most likely his entire issue.

The only way to get a video on OSO is to upload it to Youtube and then copy and paste the URL for the video.

I hardly ever use any extra tab to get on plane unless I have a lot people on board and/or a full load of fuel. In that case, I lift tabs a bit and then the drives.

Have the engines scanned and have a leak down done. The scan will tell you how many hours were run in each 500rpm increment. Being a cruiser type boat, I would bet they are mostly low rpm hours.

All the 502/454mpis have less water that comes out one side of the exhaust at idle and my tails have a 10-20* temp difference at idle.
Not sure if the 496's are the same.

Most likely done by Darin at Houston Propeller. He did a prop for me way back when and was on OSO.

I would test the other props you have and test a set Bravo props.

This is not even remotely close to police matter. It is a civil matter that would need to be taken up in small claims court if it can't resolved.

I really don't know for sure.
I suppose you could epoxy a nose cone on without doing the finish work, but that may still disturb the water flow.

This does not sound like a traditional vapor lock issue. Running a return line directly back to the tank should have eliminated any vapor lock as well.

The older lower is not as hydrodynamic and will disturb the water more as it passes around the bullet. This will cause some aeration of the water and the prop will slip more.

Ideal, maybe for N/A engines, but when you put some boost to that much gap, it can blow out the spark. Personally, I'd reduce it to .050.

Not sure of the years, but some 496s had an issue with the cool fuel system. There was overspray black paint inside the cool fuel that would flake off and clog the injectors
