  1. Looks like its at the Portland Dealership now and they seem pretty proud of it 😎 https://portland.craigslist.org/clc/bod/d/west-linn-2014-mb-sports-b52-23/7381681805.html
  2. LOL, Yes I fixed it last year however the cables snapped again this year. Terrible design and crappy cables. I have 2 sets of the 4 cables on order (decided to get a spare set) with the local dealership however its been close to 6 weeks since ordering and still nothing. I call the dealership (Action Watersports in Denver) at least once a week and get the same runaround story that MB has ordered cables from the manufacturer but has not received them
  3. 2017 B-52 / 23' 440 Raptor 5200' Elevation (Denver) Typically running around 4900# of ballast Last year I ran a 3093 (15X12.5 x .165) and was somewhat disappointed in the performance. Surf speed RPM was around 4300. This year I swapped in a 2247 (15X14.25X.150) Loving this prop so far. Dropped to about 3800RPM and gained quite a bit of top end speed (36mph from around 30). Boat comes out of the hole great and due to the lower RPM's runs quieter as well. So far I am getting around 5.5 GPH as well. Very happy with this prop! highly recommend. 😎
  4. The 2775 you are replacing is a 15"X12.5" The prop you ordered (2277) is a 15"x15.75" - This is not comparable to your old prop as it has quite a bit more pitch which will give you more top end but less pulling power or torque out of the hole especially at higher elevations or heavy ballast loads. The 2773 they sent you is 15"x13" with a .105 cup. this prop is very comparable to your 2775.
  5. love me some night surfing. Washington State prohibits from 1 hour after sunset to 1 hour before sunrise.
  6. I remember this boat well One of the best Slapped waves I have ever been on. 😎
  7. Just adding this as well to this thread. Part 1 covers the parts list, but part 2 covers the actual installation steps 😎
  8. Mxvet~ were the mounts hanging straight down or the sideways ones?
  9. I have a 2017 so I guess that would be the older of the newer towers 🤔 honestly I dont understand why so many people tow with it down. In my mind, the full strength of the tower should be when it is up and locked in. I feel like you are much more likely to damage the tower something on the tower if it is down and sitting there cantilevered over on its side and bouncing every time you go over a bridge or rough road. Now, maybe the new new towers have some way of locking it in the down position (Mine doesnt) and that would minimize movement but your still putting a lot of force on the
  10. So one of the two cables in the starbord side of my tower has snapped (Pulled out of the rope socket at the base) Has anyone replaced one? whats the trick? I assume that if I remove the inside panel I can get access to whatever mechanism is in there. Anyone have pics or advice? TIA
