roda Posted July 22, 2008 Share Posted July 22, 2008 I have a 2005 MC197 non-slot that came w/ a 12x12.5 OJ prop.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â PPCI hit a turtle and bent a blade.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Gave it to the local MC dealer which uses a local prop guy to fix.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â After it was returned I ran through the course and it seemed a bit fast at 34 even though I didn't have a skiier so I did a quick calibrate on it.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The next morning we skiied and I noticed right away that I could hear the engine reving more than usual to adjust for the skier (200lbs 28off).Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â When another skiier @ 32 mph skied it was running 34mph times before I calibrated it.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â When we were done I ran through the cals on times down to 26 and they were all quite fast on the first cal pass.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â When back on the lift we looked at the prob then compared it to my neighbors exact same boat and we noticed that the refurbed prob had a much more defined lip or curl on the back of each blade.Boat seems to be running good times but just wondering if anyone has any opinions on if this is typical???Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â A 2mph swing on a simple repair seems a bit much to me.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â -Rod A.
