The guy I bought the 496 from had it mated to a 2.38 with a 3 blade maximus and he said it pushed good but he went with a bigger motor so I'm n...

Re: looking for opinions

Dogwood did the 383 boats push good with the 2.38 3 blade k setup? I would really like to run a 3 blade r or ngr but my budget won't allow that at the moment and I can get the k at a pretty good price
