    Talking The endless summer begins!!!!!!!!!

    Heading out the San Jacinto River with a full tank of gas!! Can't wait any longer. "Mr Fun"--- thanks I respect your input. "conditions" are key with my boat! "Wildman"---I'll check on trying a larger 32 or 34...that sounds huge!
    I'm running a three blade prop that Baumann propellers worked over and bringing an old cleaver. (any thoughts on cleavers?)Will report. I've been told 3 blade props are 80's tech?? Is a 4 blade of today's tech better? Would a 4 blade prop help with performance? Pro's/Con's

    wondering the hub size of my ballistic prop is like the size of a fosters can and the exhaust runs inside it...but the clever is the size of a red bull can. Exhaust runs over the the propellers. Any thoughts on this??

    The four blade DRAG FOUR props are the only props I use on the 21 Liberators. Most 4 blades are slower. I hear the 4 blade Pro-ET works well if you can keep the blades attached.

    for the most part your "high performance" props are going to be over the hub "red bull can" sized hub

    I'd keep the fuel tank where it's at. Do you really want gas fumes in your face while your riding around in your boat.

    Your going to be disappointed in the Ballistic. The darn blade tips are missing for darn sake!

    I'm with Wildman. Find a drag IV in a 28 or 30P and be done with it. The drag is an all around superb prop for tunnels and hulls that don't need trim. I ran my 30p to over 100 on my Viking. Another to try for ultimate top end would be a 30 or 32p ET. I just picked up a 30 to try.

    Let us know how it runs!
