    Thank You Guys
    24p will be perfect with your power for better cruise. I used to swap between a 23 and 24 depending on the day.

    Define better? n, Whatcha got now?

    I am no expert, but these are my thoughts. These Baja's mostly were produced with deep x dimensions, Hawkeye is the only dealer im aware of that custom ordered drive heights from Baja. An x dimension is the difference between the prop shaft centerline and the bottom of the hull if you can image those creating 2 parallel lines. Prop blade surface and pitch puts significant load on the motor. A 3 blade Mirage plus prop is the fastest because the entire prop is submerged even when on plane on a Baja, with lets say a deep 8" x, The 3 blade is the best option for speed. Now, in the performance world and the quest for speed, a properly setup boat is the fastest when the prop blades that are above the prop shaft during the rotation are actually not in the water. So lets use a 6 blade wheel for argument sake since we're on 3 blades, a 6 blade prop with a high x dimension, on plane, with the water line at prop centerline, still only has 3 blades in the water at any given time, but those 3 blades in the water are available to move water double the time, twice as much without adding any drag. When you watch videos of gofast hardware shooting 15ft rooster tales, theyre not showing off, those blades are leaving the water and spraying water in the process. As you raise propshaft heights u can increase the number of blades without adding blade surface in the water but adding available the usable blade surface during the props rotation. You can still run a 4 blade on a deep drive but the added blade surface will cost speed while gaining load carrying ability. I have a 7" x on my boat and it takes a significant amount of trim to turn some of the prop out of the water and see numbers above 75 mph.

    sorry if this crap ain't clear, went off on a tangent. who knows if I even answered your question lol

    One more stupid question,will I need a new hub kit for the bravo 1 prop? I was about to purchase a new hub kit, but the new hub kit lists that it is compatible with the Bravo 1 and the Mirage Plus

    As long it’s the metal solid hub and not the plastic one. Personally for me, new prop, new hub...

    No stupid questions here, we all help each other. I bought this one for my 28 bravo, but it's rubber because the prop had the hub I just needed the splined sleeve

    Part number is 835257Q 1
