I have a rev 23p on my 240.....kind of want to try the rev 25p and have been looking for used but no dice.....
I have a 25 rev4 I might be selling soon. I have to get my dumb ass up to havasu so I can pick up my boat. I had obnoxious build the motor and it’s at Socal getting installed, and running hydraulic to the helm. With the new set up I think the 25 will be too small. I’m going to bring a few different props but thinking I’ll be into a 27p

Any before/after performance data on the Bravo shorty (-1, -2, -3?) vs original?
I was able to go up 2 sizes in pitch with more stability above 70. Boat will free up easier with less trim. Boat didn't like the 3 blade Mirage props after switching to the -2. So far the Bravo 1 FS seems to be the best all around prop with the shorter drive. Still looking for a smaller diameter 4 blade to try.

Nice. FWIW, I agree with the tab angle, staying with the original Hallett design. Those tabs look to be a moderate length to accomplish both quick starts and settling of the boat at speed.

Does the plate on the outdrive make a difference on a boat with real horsepower? Always thought it was for low horsepower to come on plane quicker

I have run the boat both ways. Last weekend I ran with the small Imco plate the first day than switched to the larger Max Marine plate for the next couple days. Does not make much difference in planning time but does help in running thru the mid day slop. I can run with less tab with the plate.

Mercury Sportmaster -2 lower case with Max Machine internals. Ran it with the stock length lower before switching to the Sport Master -2.

Max innards vs teague innards???
Is it a ford vs Chevy deal?
I have a bravo and it’s held up so far but thinking I need to do something. I had heard Teague innards make it as strong/stronger than an xr drive. I’m thinking I need to pull the trigger on one or the other during off season. I was toying with the lowers, but I pull the kids quite a bit and think having it higher would blow out much more for water sports.

I had upgraded the internals in my stock lower with the imco prop shaft and carrier and was supposed to be at least as strong as the XR. I went with Max Marine because that is what they specialize in. I use the boat mainly for skiing and pulling kids on what ever they want to try to ride. I have not had any issues with blowing the prop out as long as I am running a 4 blade. That being said unless the boat has handling or ride issues I would stay with the standard lower.

You gain more top end with a shorty do you not? Your boat came out bitchin. I wish I had the motivation (and coin) to take on a project like this.

Wind screens re polished and darkened. Before and after shots.
Do you mind telling how that was done? Did u do yourself or have done and if so by who. I have the lighter one, it’s fine but would like to go darker. Was told they are not easily tinted as they are plastic. Idk? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, the wrap on the inside of the windsheilds has held up well , close to 5 years now and no issues of bubbling or peeling. Prep is the key.

Thanks, lot of satisfaction bringing these 30 year old boats back. Now if I can just get motivated to finish my OG Manx project.

Was it a standard vinyl like what they wrap cars in? And did you wrap the inside or outside. And you said you went with flat black? After u polished the plastic. 👍🏼👍🏼

Black Vinyl Wrap, in a Matte finish applied to the inside of the wind screens after they were polished. They need to be removed to do it right. I also replaced the screws with machined aluminum allen head bolts and finish washers.

Thank you for taking the time to answer looks really cool. I’m gonna get that done on mine this month. I really like the black wind screens over the tinted. It’s sets off the lines better IMO. Thanks again

Thanks, been mostly complete for a couple years now. Was a combined effort, Mike over at Prime Marine was responsible for most of the fab and rigging work under the hatch and Brian did the engine package and tuning. How’s is the Vector coming along?

It’s going. It’s at Brian’s shop now. Hoping to have tailpipes done this week and Brian will button it up this month. Fingers crossed. It’s been a long drawn out ugly refresh.
