    We've only been mid 70's so far but the LU is still barried. Need different jackplate we can't get motor up high enough.
    I really like the way a performer 4 Bc Carries weight and drives on robs boat.

    My 28 has lot of cup, it runs more like a 29. Feels like to much pitch for his boat though can't get it to turn up enough.

    I would think a 26 performer 4 Bc would be the ticket with a 200.

    Still want to try my 26 hydro qiv O/T but it need to get it freshened up, got up on s stump with it during a tourney and an ear is layed back.

    guess it was a heavy one tunnel model
    no thats a just not a strong motor for that hull, a bridgeport 2.4 with a 29 srx easily runs 15-1700rpm higher and makes good power still at that,a 225 pm or 260 will take it into 90's as well. The hull is rated for 235

    My mechanic found a '93 Merc 200 he's starting to rebuild. Putting new transom in too. I can't wait until he gets done. Boat currently has a 6 inch jack plate. Gonna upgrade to a 10 or 12 in. Also gonna try to wet sand/buff/ maybe put new clear coat on, and new carpet too. I want this thing to look showroom. I'll try to post pics when done. Might look into that 26 performer that 90 5.0 was talking about.

    I'm about to have a fresh/rebuilt '93 merc 200 put on my shadow 180v. It'll be a very basic setup, 6 in jack plate, stock engine with no low water pick up, etc. I will need a prop. I'll have to buy one so any suggestions? Been thinking of a 26 pitch fury. Any others I need to check into?
