  1. RedfisherSHO , you may not be able to get your money back if your combination cant turn a 18 pitch 4 blade SS Talon and you need less pitch ,it may be very hard to sell a used almost new prop for close to the price that you pay for it . This may seem hard for you to believe but over many years of boating I have sold over 50 almost brand new props that I have bought new tested and it was not what I was looking for with performance changes I would do to to the hull and motors. I almost never get back half what I paid for them . I have gave as many away as I have sold .It would be cool if you could try before you buy but that just doesnt happen very often . I hope that you will be able to turn a 18 SS Talon 4 blade 6300 RPM on your 16 RF and if you cant I hope that your selling skills are way better than mine are . Joe R
  2. Lurem, did they ship the SS Talon 4 blade yet? Did you get your Merc . Spitefire back from the shop ?
  3. Info on repowering a 98 Hewes LT

    It may be a good idea to check out family boating center for a repower job . If you love your boat installing a new motor on it may be the way to go. Joe R

  9. Best Prop foe a Yamaha 115 FS

    Marcus, I can not and wont speak for Dale . Geeviam (Gary )said he would run the 19 on his new RF 16 with SHO 115 and can tell you what he thinks . I am not interested in testing a 19 pitch because its a little small for my set up. How ever I am very interested in a PRD3-21 or even a PRD3-20 pitch . I will test either prop if you just need feedback about how it works on the 18 HPX- SHO VF 115 combo but most likely wont be able to make a WOT run with a 19 without being on the rev limiter. Let me know when these things are for sale or if you need a test run and results with this prop on a 18 HPX / 115 SHO combo I sent a e mai to your work e mail . Thanks for your offer . Joe R
