Does anybody have a set of 34 or 36 pitch bravo props they would be interested in letting us try? We will be in havasu this weekend with a re-rigged boat and are not sure what props will work on the boat.
the boat is an 30' American Offshore with 700 hp 572's and 1.50 gears.
thanks Greg

What props are you using now? I have a pair of 32's sitting in my garage if that would help. my 34's are in CA.

The jump from the 32's to the 34's on my boat had a lot of change issues especially getting on plane and staying on plane, at WOT only gained about 4 to 5 MPH and I could tell that they were putting a lot of stress on the drives.

props

Thanks Jake, the props we used this weekend were 32 5 blade they were too small. The motors redline too quick on top end. He just picked up a set of 34's on offshore only so we will try them.

The bravo 1 34's tend to cavitate easily if you put too much power to them to quick. Good luck!
