Bravo 3 leg

Gary

Depends, on what engine it is attached to - have lots of bad ones about it being on with the yanmar 300hp, to much HP through the leg- think you can fry an egg on it when you are going along?? you certainly cannot touch it anyway (but can cook breakfast)
- not so many bad things if it is attached to the mercruiser engine- what HP are you looking at ??

Pete the engine is the Yanmar 240HP, so it up there on HP

Is 240 high enough to generate the heat ?.

Bravo 3 Leg

Gary

I think the problem originated that they were trying to put 300hp through the bravo 3 leg - by 'beefing up' the bearings, but in the experience that i have had it did not work very well - hence the reason they have replaced it now with (i cant remember the model of the leg) but i know people who are getting on ok with it.

My thoughts would be it seems to be ok, with Its designed HP running through it, it may be worth putting a new heading on this, and get the people that actually own one and get their views, as nothing is better than the feedback from the owners, I am sure between everyone on this someone has a few!

Hope this is a wee bit of help to you, Its all rather like buying a mobile phone.......... Which one do you get ?

Cheers

Pete

Thanks Pete

very helpfull, real ffedback for an owner is work 1000 sales leaflets.

At present its looking like the 7.0M humber xtream (with the non tapered tubes) with the 120HP, but still open
I will put a post on for the bravo 3, if things sway toward this.

Yes it like picking a mobile, it just that mobiles dont cost quite as much

Thanks Gary
