I was always a fan of this boat ,but not a fan of outboards or outdrives .I sat down with John hutchins and looked at the performance with both outboard and dsl duoprop outdrives ,the outboard gas was not fast enough or economical enough withor without gill bracket .Then looked at the slippage and what i could get out of the dsl duoprop ,it was no comparing the two .As a kid all I saw up on dry land, was the old formulas with outdrives taken apart .The truth be said they have come a long way since then and I have not had a problem with the bravoIIIX . It is like a little sportscar with plenty of speed and performance it manuevers as good in reverse as it does in forward .
she was built on spec, she has been so much fun running around in it ,never got around to selling it .In the end it came down to the STEYR dsl hooked up to BRAVOIII X DIESEL DUOPROP OUTDRIVE for light weight and performance .One of the pictures is from the lobster boat races ,one in jonesport and other in searsport .

THE STEYR DSLwith BRAVOIIIX was picked because of the durability and the guys in Maine had been running tht engines in the races and commercial fishing with them .Not to mention the hp to wght ratio.I never would have thought so, but it brings out the best in the boat as far power goes and performance
