Jabe, those are a couple nice motors you have there. What are you going to be showing at the boat show on the 23rd?

got the Javelin into a tank today...........what a sweetie....

she dialed in so nice......might be taboo, but i remove the shift arm so i can get higher RPM"s in the tank so i can dial in closer on the fast speed, then set the slow speed........i love this motor, look out boys, Jabe aint lookin at the back of your boats no nore...:biggrin: :doh:

The one I let you try out was a 10 1/2 X 13" Its the one on the right in the picture with the less surface area. I don't recall the number on it. The one on the left is my main prop pitch which is 10 1/2 X 12"
