    Well, I have been working this deal 6000 miles away in Nigeria.
    My wife has been handling most of it. She has full POA.
    Been approved. Everything is a go. The deal was going to happen Monday. Than we find out the seller does not have his LDWF registration card .

    Credit union wont do the deal without it. I checked the pics of the boat. Yep! No numbers on the bow.
    Will take 1-4 months to get a duplicate card. Looks like the deal may have hit a wall.

    Prior to the fury, the tempest was the best prop around for most of us that wanted a 3 blade. Then along came the fury and it raised the bar a bit. Either will work well. Usually the fury will work better. Only issue I have seen is that the driver is a fairly important part of the equation for those that claim the tempest is better. I've yet to personally see a boat where this is true, but I have read about a few here on BBC. I can't imagine you not being happy with either. Probably a tad happier with the fury, but the tempest is not a bad prop. The older you use, however. IE an old laser2 prop is getting long in the tooth and is not very close to tempest/fury.

Could be the way I'm loaded or the setup but the numbers are very good. Set up like I am it drives well at WOT. It can be set up to be a real handful at WOT. Mine may be set up with the motor a little deeper than some because I fish Toledo Bend a good bit and prefer it deeper in the rougher stuff. P2 is a great boat, Its priced reasonable, fishes well, plenty fast enough, and sips fuel.

    I would agree with you. Allisons and such run like that. Every cat I have ever driven likes the bow significantly lower for top speed. As I have reported, my 2008 classic is running 74+ with 450 pounds of adults + dog, full tank of fuel. By myself, it has broken 77 regularly and in cold air and light chop has run a max of 78.5. With the bow nowhere near that high. Looks good in photos, of course. That being said there WAS a classic I drove in Louisiana with a merc 2.5 racing motor. I ran it just past 90 before running out of room where we were. It was definitely up on the pad as in that photo but bow wasn't so high.

    So you are saying BCB feels like the 24 fury 3 is the best prop for a p2 with a 200 opti?

    I ran a tempest on my 2014 PII and it was good enough. I have a Fury on my Caracal and notice it lifts a lot better than the PII did.
