    Prop Suggestions?

    1988 Eliminator Daytona 23.5 feet. Have 225 Johnson Loopers carb motors. Presently have Bravo1 28s. Buries the tach so I need to move up in pitch. Was wondering if anyone has experience and can suggest other props to look for that may perform as well or better than Bravo1s on this boat. No complaints just starting to browse the want ads and dont know much about this boats setup. Thanks, Paul

    I had a 21 Daytona Eliminator with a 200 Merc, and my friend had a 23 with a single Johnson V8. They are heavy boats and need bow lift. Mercury Choppers always worked well on them, but with two motors I guess you would need a left hand rotation on one, and they don't make left hand choppers that I am aware of. Hills Signature line of propellers may have something that would be worth looking at. https://www.hillmarine.com/four-blad...er-p/opr4e.htm
    I see you are in Punta Gorda...I am in Cape Coral and boat on Charlotte Harbor.

    A lot of weight hanging off the back as well. May also want something with some stern lift. Best whole boat lifting props?

    I used to run cleavers on my 21 skater with twin 200 mercs. Was great, but you've got a heavier boat with heavier motors.

    I wonder how Rev 4's would work. Not sure you can go high enough in pitch with them though.

    Beak Boater - just got the eliminator back together and testing/tweaking. Would love to meet one day. You may see our bright blue cat out there. If so, flag me down and say high. Paul

    How do the Bravo's run on the boat? They are stern lifters. Ran them on my Scarab with V8's.
