BB 2200...

Postby 1960 BB » Sun Mar 21, 2010 4:14 pm

After my brother in law rode in my 1960, he wants to buy a BB. He is between the 2170 and 2200. I am wondering what kind of wot is expected when a Mercury Optimax 225 is pushing the 2200 (not fisherman or pro)? Or what kind of performance for a Mercury Opti 200 pushing the 2170? Any help is appreciated!

I was at a local Blazer Dealer the other day discussing props. He brought up how some folks
think going from the f150 4 stroke to a 200hp makes a big difference in speed. He told me
its not the same as a bass boat when it comes to speed. I don't know if it equates the same
with a 2 stroke. With my 2170 it would only equate to maybe 5-7mph faster according to
the salesman.

the only boat that ever took me was russel weaver's yellow 2220. he runs a 250 vmax. a boy that fishes with him says he runs a phase 3 kit on it. i think he just runs super light.

my boat hit 65 on gps once when i was proping it out, i was headed down river from big whites to g.p. with a 25 mph north wind at my back.

when you put the right prop on your boat, it will be more efficient. yours might already have the right prop for your application. i had to run 7 different props to find the right one. i have one that i just use for tourneys (shotguns) and a tempest i use the rest of the time.

i just read up on the owners tourney, it seems like i might have to participate. to be honest, i have got away from the slam fishing for a while. i will need to sharpen up a little before i feel good spending the cash to fish a slam tourney. i do like the 1 day format myself. if i could leave the sheeps and pomps alone long enough to find some quality trout and flounder, it will be on.
