    Quick update guys, finally got my hands on the 32 Mazco 3 Blade. Motor is still well below the pad, ran up to 96 mph gps @ 5900rpm and ran out of river. Screams to 90 odd then every mph after that is a bit slower. That being said it did keep accelerating, my gut feel is very high 90's is within reach, if not the magical 100 mark. Not bad for a stock green motor without a low water pickup, well i think so anyway! Adam

    InspectorLance, Motor is buried for the time being, its almost 2" below. I have plenty of water pressure so can go higher with standard water pickups. would be nice to see how fast it will go with everything standard BRP. Had unreliable / modified motors in the past and would be nice to not modify this one in any way! I'm real keen to try this 4 blade ET now, engine height may follow shortly. Haven't really got too many photos of it yet, heres another one though. More to come later.

    I have not had a chance as yet to borrow another prop, i do have a 4 blade pro et lined up, just need to make it happen. I was without a boat for so long i'm just enjoying it as is for now. Here is a pic...

    I thought id put a quick update in here, running the 250HO 1.5 inches below the pad for now, on a 9" jackplate. Still getting used to the boat having only driven V bottoms before but i am getting 90mph GPS with a 28 Trophy Plus at around 5900rpm. Still a few 100rpms left to go, just have not found a good stretch of water to wind it out yet. Very responsive motor, plenty of torque! I have not heard of many people running the Trophy on a STV, so its sure to go even better with the right prop. Might be able to borrow a 4 blade ET, any other suggestions? Adam

    How would a 32 Mazco RE-3 round-ear perform? A mate has one for sale.

    Thanks for the reply Fish, do you feel the lower engine height im going to have to run with the BRP gearbox may affect prop choice? I wont have access to many props to try/borrow for testing being located in Australia, its going to be a case of make an educated guess and buy one. Im pretty sure you can get hub kits to suit BRP/OMC for any flo torque prop, is that right? Will definately get some pics up once the boat is completed.

    My 2009 250HO is only a few days away from being hung off the back of my Euro! Starting with 6" setback. What props should i be using for this setup? I have a 28 Yamaha but thats it. Was thinking a big ET (3 or 4 blade) or maybe a cleaver??? Adam
