    . Ever see a 800 HP pontoon boat? This one has twin 400 Honda's hanging off the back.. Umm, Rich buddy, those are the Merc Racing 400Hp outboards, not Honda's..and at $68000 each, it better go fast!! Another stupid over powered pontoon, you can buy a real boat completely done up and have change left over.. just saying.

    Not usually an issue with singles. If You have a multi engine setup, it can become a factor, depending on the shape of the ear/ type of the blades, and direction. A lot has to do with length of the hull, how close the Prop centers are to each other, the infamous 'X' dimension on the transom, RPM speed of the props and several other factors. BUt typically, if the port drive is turning left(CCW) and the starboard (CW) it will 'usually cause bow rise, and in reverse fashion Port (CW) and STBD (CCW) will cause tail or transom lift. Again, a lot of factors play into this. One of the huge advantages to something like a Bravo III drive is the twin counter-rotating props cancel out torque steer, and creates a straight tracking and lift of the transom while increasing an amazing amount of efficiency in fuel economy and handling. But on the down side to the Bravo 3 is the cost of props (2 to a set) are about $800 for a set!! After markets are less of course. That is why I suggested the prop I did. If you can afford a little more $$ in a prop, You may want to call Ron Hill Propellers in Santa Ana, Ca. They are some of the finest props I have ever used, and they will work with you to get your prop issue resolved. On my Cruisers, I had a 365 Hp motor with 405 Ft lbs of torque, and ended up running a 15.5" dia. X 17" P 5blade SSTL. that hull was very heavy at 4450 lbs for a 23 ft OAL. But, it shot up on plane at lightning fast pace. Top speed was only 53 MPH, not bad for a heavy boat. I also have a Piranha 3 blade that would take that same boat to 64MPH but at a slower pace. Props are a funny thing, sometimes they just do not work well on some hulls. Best advice I can offer, is ask other boat shops/owners with simular setup. Or give me a shout. I see if I can help. Dean.

    Living in the high rent district. The blue 40 ft skater has twin 1100 HP mercury engines & 140 mph top speed. This can be yours for $1,500,000.

    AZ,NV and CA or FL are your best bet. Craigslist may have the best chance of finding one. 90% are going to be V-drives, and they're pricey. Especially if they have resto-ed. Campbell made an Identicle model too, but they are just as expensive, if not more. Good luck, just patient winter is coming...Dean.

    Having a blast at Powell. Lots of expensive and fast boats, and the Carlson is running with the best of them. Zero problems. Estimated top speed is 60+ at 5000 rpm. Everybody compliments on how it looks, sounds and runs. :rooster: Today is Laddie's poker run and bbq. Stay tuned for awesome pics.

    Everybody arrived safely. We drove a thunder and lightning show all night. Set up camp and launched the Carlson. Then the stuff hit the fan. 65 mph winds, lightning striking all around us and heavy rain. This lasted about an hour then it was gone. Anita's Facebook page has the pics of me saving the boat when it broke loose. A rental house boat capsized across the bay from us. This is pics of this morning, the calm after the storm.
