    Croxton Charger Tempest

    Ok guys, Mark has worked us up a special Tempest.Fill the form out and tell him the Charger blue print.
    If you can tell him the rpms and speed and motor and boat and year ,so he can document it to each boat...it would be helpfull.

    Good Stuff!

    If we can get more good data for Mark he can build us some props that really work on our hulls.

    I should have my 27 Tempest back from Mark late this week. I'll let you all know how it runs. I have high hopes.

    Re: Croxton Charger Tempest (Tommy13)

    Hey guys he can also do wonders with a 24" Raker prop too for anyone running an Evinrude. I had him put pvs holes and some extra cup at the tips. Talking about lift. I am still adjusting the pvs holes. Having a Carburated engine I seem to change them out depending on the weather. I have been running this prop for a while and we have got it dialed in for my application. A stock 24 Raker I can get 64 mph. With the Croxton worked Raker 69 mph loaded with full livewells and 25 gallons of fuel, full of fishing tackle.

    It went with the boat that it was tweaked for.

    Not really sure. Is the fat shaft use the hub thats a solid piece? Cause mine has the plastic hub then the the metal part that comes in from the back to fit the prop to the shaft to eliminate the slop.

    The fat shaft uses the solid metal hub kit with the rubber strips that fit between the hub and the prop.

    I've personally never had much luck with a trophy but I've not tried one on a boat set-up like yours. Interested to see how it does. I have a feeling the 797 would really like a bravo with some work done to it.

    When i first got the boat and was for the most part empty beside full tank of fuel i could get about 5750 out of 26 trophy at 72.7 in a mile straight away. Once i had it tournament loaded tackle, full fuel, livelwells full i could only get 5350 at 69. But handling the trophy was so nice. With the tempest it was a pain to turn left WOT. Trophy one handed steering WOT. This Boat just deffinately needs a prop with big lift. And once i run the 25 and see how it performs I will probably send the 26 off to get some work done.
