    TNT marine isn't far from you. I'm not sure if they still deal with outboards but it's worth a look. Biscayne just south of 135 street.

    Its deffinatly a HEAVY boat!! You almost need two people to pick it up!!


    slowverado: your dads advice/opinion is just that... his OPINION. You are right that he has driven blah boat blah mph with blah setup, and thats what worked for HIM. everyone sets up their boats for how it drives best for THEM. ie- people who ALWAYS ride with a passenger will tell you that you dont need a centersteer boat whereas someone who rides solo will praise center steer. There is nothing wrong with their recommendations, its just what works for THEM. no different than what your dad is telling you...

    Thanks, what's the address???...
    I'll upload the video as soon as we make the trials and more pics of the finalized work

    The Cleaver propeller is really cool it's 14.5 X 24 but I think I can get a 28 and also a 32

    I'll tell you the speeds and rpms

    Best Regards,

    Tha 2liter wit a 28" cleaver should put that boat in tha solid 80's(if tha boat is light az it looks)...

    I sho like tha color..........Kinna look's like sumpth'in I have seen befo!!!

    RICHY,I need that bottom mod.....dam 2,,,,3 mph and more stabilty.I sure could use a little of both.

    I'm thinking your boat does what it does the way it is . I wouldn't touch it !
    If anything , I'd put a 200 on it ,and leave the top end stuff to your other boat .

    Ed, I wouldn't even wash yo bote, mussless change anythang!!...LOL....I wuz totally blown away when I seen yo stuff run like it does...Kinna skeer'd, but blown away!!!.....U damm sho got yo stuff dial'd in and work'in fer ya....When I modified mine, I wuz putt'in it on a serious diet, so I could make 1250#s for Pro 120, and while talk'in to Summerford, he told me about how they shortened tha deck on tha race boats, and that the pad mod would make it safer at speed, so I did thoze mods.....I had drove tha bote in tha 90's wit stock bottom, and compare'in tha 2, tha modified hull gave me a better feel at tha same speeds(after I leern'd tha in'z and outs ov the mods!!)...

    Ed, tha only thang I kan see to improve tha handle'in ov yo bote would be a good cote ov YELLER paint!!..

    If'in it ain't broke....DON'T FIX IT!!

    he boat will be on the weater this monday, so I can put some driving hours to know the boat and how it handles itseld flying over the water with the 14.5 X 28 Cleaver, got that 32 also
    I think the pad will make it fly!!, just one week away from the river world cup 2K10!!
    also TREX, DO YOU KNOW of someone that has a LASEr with the added pad like mine, but isntead of outboard, is Jet powered?? how does it handle the LASER with a turbine?

    LATER Today I'll upload pics from the boat with logo and seats
    also advice me with the height of lower unit (water intakes) vs water line

    so far, have'nt find that mistery LASER...
    boat went to the water with the 2.0 L Mariner wih a liwer unit 20' and a Cleaver 14.5 X 24 67 miles per hour / with limited rpm power packs, gave 6,200 does'nt give more...
    a question what's the height that i SHOULD have with an original cone transmission high performance with water down intakes, height from the hull to the torpedo??
    best regards, what do you think of a Chopper 14.5 x 26, 27 ad 28?? I believe it will uplift it too much righT??

    TREX!!! I WOn! the first stage of the world cup!! Bacalar, Chetumal OB 2000 (OUTBOARDS 2.0L - 2.4L)- 1rst place
    In the river race we ran it with the nose lower unit and with the Cleaver 14.5 X 24 made 6200 RPM and a top speed of 68 miles per hour (GPS)! we arrived in second, we got lost in a section of the river jeje, but made it to the finish in great time!! 78km, the next stage was from Botes San Francisco to Bacalar 92km got there with a hurt transmission and the Cleaver a lil' damaged, we hitted a rock in the shallow part of the mangrooves..
    then we changed the tranny and put the Chopper 14.5 x 25 worked as a beast in the circuit race, ten laps which were 4 miles each, it gave us 5000-5200 and a max speed of 72miles per hour (gps)!!! awsome we were right behind 2 Stokers with fixed 2.4 engies and our stock 2.0 mariner 150hp made it great!!! and the Chopper works real good but takes more fuel than the Cleaver and lifts faster the hull, I drove the lap circuits, and yes as you trimmed it, u find the sweet spot but we felt the hull faces to much against the wind! its a resistance but when it's perfectly trimmed it lifts itself beautifully, I have on tape (Go pro - hd cam) parts of the river race...
    It was awsome, now for the Tabasco and Chiapas stages!
    the pad worked perfectly! amazing the LASER speed boaT!
