    Very true. We chose speedmaster. the boat actually handled better. My prop was my saviour though. Mercury props were terrible. I bought a bronze Michigan OJ prop that looked like a chopper.. Marcel Raveau beat on it all the time.. I used it on the 800 and 1000 also. Same boat. Lucky to have never thrown a blade.

    This is fun, this takes me back... My best friend back in high school ran Sport G in Region 6 from the '74 to the '77 seasons. Did pretty well as I recall. He and his dad went out to Colorado to to get the boat, it was a Marathon tunnel, and it seems like the OAL was 16-16.5'. He started with a '74 850 short, then in the '75 season is when the XS's were available, so he switched to that.
    As mentioned, same unit as the 1500 except with 2.33/1 gears. As far as props, his were all cleavers, at least a couple were Mercury but I don't believe they all were. I know they had all been "worked" by one of a couple known prop wiz's in the region.
    Seems like straightaway speeds were in the upper 70's. The kilo record was probably in the low 80's at the time.

    Don't know if they had SG back in the early 60's but my dad ran a Switzer Shooting Star with an inline 6 in G class.

    I used to run bass boat chopper props in Sport J and used to get razz'd by my SJ competitors about using them until I soundly beat them with choppers, then the snickering stopped. Always thought that the Merc thru-hub exhaust cleavers were vastly overrated.
