Anybody have a Bravo 1 24p Prop? Tubing with our Magic deck. I got a 625 in it and it planes at about 25mph but I think a 24 would work a little better than my 26. Always have a grip of people, ice, drinks and full tanks normally. It’s already a heavy boat by itself

I have one, I will be in Havasu Sat. Do you need it before then? Mine is for a Bravo 1 drive. Does your drive have a larger shaft or anything?

I have two and would like to try a 26 pitch. I have a 24 Lavey with 496HO and Bravo 1. Assuming yours is a four blade. Will be in Havasu Friday afternoon.

It currently has a Bravo 1 on it. I know ZERO about props and never even changed one but I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn once. I did watch a YouTube video about changing one. Here is a pic on mine. I will be in Havasu Thursday at about 10pm until Sun am. PM me your number and I will hit you up on that if It falls thru Friday afternoon. Thanks

24 will work great. Does it say Teague Platinum on the side of the drive?

Do you have one of the plastic prop wrench deals? It comes right off, when you take off the nut. It does not need to be super tight, hence the plastic wrench.

But I don't know if you have a bigger output shaft. That appears to be an upgraded drive, and I would expect that given your power level and boat size. The prop I have would work I just might not have the proper pieces to put it on, if you have an upgraded/different output.

I do have a prop wrench in the boat and actually a 28 in my boat also. I have the original build paperwork at home which is what this boat has now. It was originally rigged with the IIMOR 625. It is an IMCO drive

Paperwork does not say what IMCO type. I’m sure they will fit. It’s pretty standard I’m sure

I have the same boat and set up. A 26 is what I run most of the time. I have a labbed 26 cutting edge that was best, but after it got dinged up and relabbed its got some issues. right now I'm running a regular BRavo 1 26 and it still runs good. Tops out at around 72 with 2 people and half fuel, but its not pulling to redline, it leaves about 3-400 RPM's on the table. If you regularly run more than 4 people or heavy loads the 26 will be a dog out of the hole, but I also run trim tabs to help with that. I can let you try one of my 26's, I have to go to Phoenix Friday but will be back mid morning saturday

I run a Bravo 24P to pull the full 5200 RPM with TS of 71, very responsive and get on plane. When I run the 26P its sluggish, slow out of the hole and will only pull 4800 RPM's, guessing not enough ponies.

Mine with the 26 gets on plane in about 10 seconds and hits 72 full tanks, 5 people and a lot of ice and beer but only about 5000 rpm’s. The 28 will take it above 80. Looking for the 24 to tube with a full load. I got it hooked up with an inmate for Fri to switch props with him to try out a 24. Thanks guys
