  5. Jack plate

    Bobs manual plates are a p.i.a. to adjust.
  6. Jack plate

    my riverrocket had a rapidjack on it when i first got it. not a bad plate but it was peeling around the side bolts & it bugged me. i did some research on plates & wound up buying a slidemaster 6 inch manual . excellent quality. it's a heavy plate compaired to the rapidjack,very easy to adjust motor hight to any setting in no time without binding ,still looks like new after several years.a great product.

  8. Anyone using the Verado 350 SCi?

    bob,you could put a 200hp "fishing motor"on an stv & with proper set up run mid to high 90 mph & possibly touch 100 with some performance mods & not break the bank costwise.stvs are of a very great design.
  9. Anyone using the Verado 350 SCi?

    optimax 200 is #434 ,the 300xs opti is #505.the 350 fourstroke is #667, these weight listings are from mercury racing web specs,what they list at weight , probably are dry (withought fluids ,not ready to run specs) so actual weight may be a bit more.you may want to get ahold of jack at fullthrottle powerboats to choose the best power options for your needs.i'll say it again ,a 300xs opti or big etec is a good fit for a euro,they dont smoke,very quiet running ,dont make alot of noise & will get you over 100 mph & sip fuel.just big $$ to purchase ...but what isnt these days??
  10. Anyone using the Verado 350 SCi?

    welcome deckofficer,asuming that you are talking about an stv euro in your posts, i dont know of anyone that has powered one with a verado or any fourstroke due to the performance factor & extra weight,an optimax 300, or etec would be a better choice,they are very user friendly outboards, & have been mounted on euros on several applications with great sucess. good luck on your search.
  11. Prop choices?

    woops,just saw description on reader rides, should run great with 260, still want to know bout different props ,especially bblades,,
  12. Prop choices?

    wow! VERY NICE, what's under the cowl?
  13. Prop choices?

    Lucky, lets see some pics of your Euro!! & tell us how it differs from the river rocket. congrads!
  14. Prop choices?

    yea i've got the cleavers covered, 28p,merc & a 32 hill ,both run & handle very wel for what they are designed for. Lucky,very interested & the bblades report , been searching for a 30 et for allround as i lost my last one when i broke a propshaft a couple years ago .believe it or not i hav a slightly modded 24 chopper that is great for short bursts around the lake ,but i wont stretch it out too far past 8000 or so.
  15. Prop choices?

    thread has been inactive 10 years, anyone have anything to add? et, offshore ,& other blade types that have been tried? 3 ,4 ,5 blade designs ? my favorite spinelli got hurt last year , tiny crack ,it's fixed but aint quite the same.has a good holeshot & decent topend & handles well.been a good allround prop.

    trying again

  23. River Rocket

    Lucky, I'm kinda interested in the black vinyl windshield overlay,i want to change some looks of my rig this year. white hull,yellow deck & purple vinyl striping . fyi, the vinyl has held up very well for the last 6-7 years & I'm in Florida.it's a 3m vinyl, holds color,applys well & easy to "patch"if gouged.
  24. merry christmas

  25. Back Seat Fairing handle

    my hatch handle looks like a stainless drawer handle,look at rex marine,eddie marine & some of the other boat part custom companies for a nice selection of grab handles.
