Default Left and Right Bravo's 24" pitch

Selling left and right bravo's with 24" pitch. Would trade for a set of Mirage 3 blades with 23" pitch. Do not know what they are worth but would like what it will cost to get a set of used mirage props.

Thank you.

It just has the stock twin 420's in it. It is a 1989 formula sr1 311. Just got the boat last year and they came on it. They are way to much prop for the boat and hp from what I have researched. That is why I am looking for some mirage 3 blade 23" pitch props.

The 24 B1's shouldn't be too much prop for that boat and HP. They should be pretty close.
What rpm and speed are you seeing at WOT????

From what I researched the boat came with mirage 3 blade 23" pitch props wigh that motor package. It was under reving but I do not recall by how much. The motors are stock and from what I have read, if going to a 4 blade prop the pitch should be dropped by 1" if not increasing the power. This would keep you running the same desired rpm. I may be wrong and I am far from an expert so let me know if I am. I just want to put the props that the boat was originally tested with.

Thanks.

I have a set if 21" 3 blade Mirage propellers that can be repitched at a reasonable price. I would be interested in a trade plus I pay you $100. My props are in great shape, they came off a 38' Fountain Sport Cruiser with the same power.

Call me if you are interested, I could also have the repitch done for you, if you do not have a good prop guy you use. 239 443 8233

I would get some good test numbers with the exact rpms and GPS speeds before changing them.
Ideally you want to run your engines right around 5000-5200rpms with light fuel.
You may be better off getting your props labbed. The 4 blades will most likely give you better cruise speed.
