    Drive shower prop clearance

    Finally got around to getting a 23P Rev4 for my boat. Looking forward to seeing how it performs and what it does for my cruising RPM labor day weekend. That being said, it gets VERY close to the pickup for my drive shower. I'm wondering if I should cut it shorter, or if it won't be an issue...

    Is a depth finder necessary for Powell?

    My father seems to think fixing the depth finder on the Lavey is of dire importance. I'll be driving it behind a houseboat rental for a week and I'm sure we'll be using it to figure out where we beach the houseboat for the night and whatnot, aside from the usual driving it and towing a tube. I...

    What do you use for flags / whips?

    Still have my incandescent stern light from 2003 in my boat. I was wondering what y'all use on your boats as far as mounting flags, whether it be on a bimini pole, something that goes into the light receptacle, or clips onto the light pole itself. Also wondering where I might find the LED whips...

    Switch to Rev4 from B1 prop?

    Considering going from a 24P Bravo 1 prop to a 23P Rev4 in my 496 powered Lavey NuEra 26. I started a thread a while back concerned about my unusually high slip numbers and lower speeds, even compared to boats with an identical setup, and since then learned that my prop was damaged and repaired...

    Need a new place to stay with waterfront RV parking.

    I've stayed the last 13 years at Black Meadow Landing. I won't get into why, but I no longer want to. So I need a new spot that I can park my coach on or near the water with 50 amps, and also keep my boat beached or anchored right by the RV. A nice RV park with nice, new facilities. Something...

    Removable wind deflectors?

    I've been tossing around the idea of putting some Finney's type wind deflectors on the boat, but I'm not in love with the idea of them being permanently affixed. I have seen some photos where you can pop them in and out, with pins installed into the deck rather than the bars themselves? Anyone...

    Found out my boat was converted...

    I am the 3rd owner of a 2003 Lavey NuEra 26 MCOB. I accidentally found photos of it on Lavey's website under sold boats. The previous owner never mentioned to me that it started life as a closed bow. How concerned should I be? Thus far the boat has given me no problems and it's been great, but...

    High cruising RPM?

    Recently purchased a 2003 Lavey NuEra 26 MCOB with the standard 496 MAG (non HO) and B1. Overall I'm in love with it, but I was sort of expecting to have lower cruising RPM's, but maybe I just need an adjustment to the setup. Right now 4000 RPM is about 35 mph at Havasu...same as my old 18' VIP...

    Lightning Powerboats???

    Does anyone know anything about this thing? Talked to the owner and the boat has a good story but I can't find more information on it. 80 hours on 496HO/entire boat. New interior, sound, detailed, fully serviced. I'd like it more if it was an MCOB but overall it looks real nice....I just don't...

    Nordic Heat 28' or Magic Wizard 29'?

    I've found a few examples of each I have interest in, but I'm definitely torn on which I would rather go with. The only major difference that I can see is that the Heat is stepped and the Wizard is not (I could even be wrong about that. Not any kind of expert over here). I'm only looking for an...
