You can still borrow mine. Let me know next time.

You damage it you bought it though;):D:D
If jory doesn't get one. I will call you. I forgot that you made that offer last year. Does your boat run good with that prop.My plan is to just run the boat with a larger pitch prop to see how it reacts.With the 22p I'm hitting the rev limiter at about 4900 rpm. Jory said we need to see what a 24p will do.

Looks like 71 for saturday. I will be figuring out the prop situation this week. my plan was to go on sat. as sos is open, I could just swing by and switch them out . I might just go anyway .... getting the bug.

Folsom has a cop in the campgrounds thats a real barny fife. said i was speeding in HIS camp ground and gave me every drunk test he could think of then wasnt happy that i passed them all so made me do the breathalizer and passed that as well. ithink it may be because when he ran my name i heard it come back on the radio " be aware that he is a REGISTERED owner of multiple hand guns and an UZI" he looked at me like i was a criminal and said is that true? I said I thought thats what a law abideing citizen does is register his guns. then after all was done annd he let me go he forgot to give me my license back so later that night he came to where my camp area was and couldnt find me so he gave my license to someone who said they new me and i didnt know them at all . you would think a proffesional cop would have been man enough to hand it directly to me.

They are very strict on shore, but if you are in a boat, there isn't a restriction for drinking unless you are driving.

well i think he saw me out on the water having fun all day and when he seen me head for the ramp he waited at the campground entrance and when i came around the corner he was standing in the middle of the road said i was speeding. but i didnt see him holding a radar gun so i dont know how he could say i was speeding. he was a pain in everyones arse all weekend. im a mellow guy and dont drink and raise hell in a campground and didnt see anyone getting crazy but he was running from one end to the other of that place upholding the law and when you would speak with him he made sure you knew it was HIS campground. it may have been his vertical challenged body that gave him the attituide. I know i will pass on that lake for camping in the future

I don't remember what HP your motor is, but my stock 310HP P.O.S. will turn the 24p bravo to 4200 RPM. The boat had a 21P 3-blade before and would hit the rev limiter. I don't think you will get a better all-around prop for your size boat.

THIS IS NOT TRUE! I just had the Sheriff that is in charge of the boat patrols on my boat last weekend, drinking a beer I might add, and he told me that you ARE allowed to drink in the boat but not on the shore. Nor are you allowed to drink in your boat if it is touching shore or beached.
Sorry sir, but sign at gate say's no alcohal is aloud in park! Your ticket not mine Greg

You sure like to bet a lot grads. You must have a new money tree?? But Joe, he is correct, as long as your in the boat your good to go, not that I ever drink, but I have friends that indulge a little;). Didn't know about the campground sites. guess its just on the beaches that they are concerned with. wheres my prop JOE . Will be down on the river this Saturday.

I think the 24p would be a good fit for my current engine / hp, but if I add hp and a new lower unit, I should be able to get to a 26p or more. I will find out this year.

Agree with rshrp. I was at the dock one day just putting in, warming up my boat and it is kinda loud. The water cops pulled right in behind me and I just figured oh hell no use turning it off now, so I just kept revving it up and let it warm up. One guy jumps out and I think real good, buit he walks right past me. He returns in about 10 minutes after I have been spraying exhaust water all over the cop boat behind me, carrying a couple of windy bags full of I guess hamburgers smiles at me gets in the boat and takes off. I guess food is a priority, but never saw them again that day or was bothered at all by them. I have seen them harrass the row bar boats playing screamin ugly music, but I guess they like my country shit...

You can have alcohol in your boat while it is floating on the lake. Keep in mind that the sherrifs dept will check you out if you are making a scene and that is usually reserved for the wakeboard boats. Have you guys seen the show party heat lake havasu on tru tv, if not check out a couple of episodes and you will get the idea, they may not get you for drinking on the boat but they will find somthing wrong with you or your boat.

I used to have a 26' eliminator with your same motor and drive package and found that I got a few more m.p.h. out of a 26p over a 24p. I also have a friend that had your same exact hull with a 415 h.p. 502 and he also ran best with a 26p.
what speed ? guestimate sp....
