Thatís going to be the toughest... this one had a very old first gen mercruiser on it and it was just a cover made with plywood and was junk.. wood was completely gone through out the boat and I just needed it for a couple parts.. the windshield is cloudy but Iíve buffed them out before and would be ok I think. Railing is all there also. Boat is gone.

Gotch yeah I been trying to find the cover for the 351

I probably have everything you need for the trim and windshield off my parts boat for the duck. But Iím in minn. and shipping would probably be crazy for the odd size of it all.... if you know anyone in minn. or want to make a road trip..
 Iím sure we could work something out.
Good looking boat Does it still have the engine cover

Considerable difference between a CVX and 179 tri-hull.  Not a fair comparison if only looking at props.  The 23 that cames on mine was not a modern prop, more of a mouse ear.   I ended up using an aluminum prop that gave decent results.  It was a great boat, but if you're performance oriented, the four cylinder will only go so fast.

Hot Rod Roy ..
Most of use are from MN. & WI. so we post pictures of local spots to see if anyone can guess spot.

That's why I threw that photo into this game!   Lots of beautiful spots in Minnesota, and some outside of Minnesota, too!   That shot is in Yosemite National Park, CA.    (Yo-SEM-it-tee)

We have beautiful water in California, too!   Those are Dogwood trees in bloom.   Thanks for the Minn & WI photos!   Okay, here's one you guys can't match:

That's the HMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, CA.

23p Laser II would work perfect on a CVX16SS. Excellent top end, holds well in corners, good take off. A V179 has too much hull in the water for it to work well on it but the CV's, CVX's do not.

Best prop I have found so far for my CV16SS 140.

I would like to have a shop add a little more pitch to my 22P Laser II, I can get a little more then my red line on a good day.
But .. the expenses of doing it and not working so I have to go back wouldn't be worth the small amount I'd gain.
Maybe .. Maybe not Ö

Interesting .. Brandon's V-179 is listed with same prop.
His boat is about 225 lbs. heavier.
YEP .. All about testing Ö testing & more testing !

I would love to put a 23p laser 2 on my 179. I have been looking just going too high at the moment to justify it.
