    Default Sir?

    I don't know if you remember the boat, but I have a question about a 76 Howard V Drive 21 I bought from a friend of yours from Canyon Lake. I forget his name, but it's a yellow and white cruiser and you were there when I took my test drive.

    I was wondering if you remember what gears are in the C500. I have some receipts of work you did, but nothing on the vdrive. It has a nice little stainless Menkins three blade underneath which I think is cut all the way down to a 11x14. It's slipping pretty bad with more than three people in the boat. Going prop shopping (12X15 to start) but was wondering about the gears without having to crack the box.

    Here's a pic of the boat, to see if you remember.


    Thanks

    Brian

    Yes sir that was Travis & Bill Taites boat. I really don't remember what gear ratio they had, because that was a long time ago.
