    RIP Dave and deepest condolences to Karen and the boys.. Dave was one of the best and will be greatly missed. I also met him threw this forum and ended up spending weekends on Lake Norris and Cumberland with him and Karen. They took me in on the 253 as if I was one of the family!

    Even More CL Finds!

    best prop for enforcer

    My Enforcer is a completely different animal being and outboard but I know it ran best with a Mercury Mirage Plus (I was running a 25" to mid upper 60's with the outboard) and I have heard others with very good results with them on this style boat.
