I currently have a 24 p Bravo I prop on my 24 ft Deck boat with a Bravo I drive. I am only turning it 4500-4700 RPM (Tack connections are loose, so I don't really know) and running right around 58-62 mph on gps. We boat at 4400 ft and typicallly see the density altitude in the 6000-7000 ft range. I am thinking of going down in pitch to try and get the RPM up some to make more power. The motor is a built 523" and can handle the RPM, what can the drive handle?
I think the gear case has 1.50 gears is it better to change the gears to 1.65 or just change the prop? How hard is it to change the gears?
If I have to buy a new prop is there something other than the Bravo 1 that I should be looking at? Anyone got something used your interested in selling?
