    Hey there. Yes we moved up to a 242 sport a few years ago. The ole Persuader was a super fun ride but little too small for the big weekends on our lakes here. You still have the same Convincor?

    2003 Persuader 218 Prop Issue

    I had a 219 Peruader with 350 mag and alpha with no tabs. It had the porpoise issue with a 3 blade Mirage but a 22 Bravo 1 fixed that problem for me. I think you are probably a bit over pitched with a 24 on that setup. Don’t know that change in Pitch will fix porpise though. I’d figure out...

    1997 Pursuader 219 prop help

    Try a 4 blade for best all around performance on that hull. I’d recommend a Bravo 1 in 22 Pitch or a Merc offshore/ vensura in a 21 or 23. That will do the trick to get out of the hole and improve the overall handling a lot. You shouldn’t need tabs with the right prop. Good luck they are a...

    We boat on KY Lake. Big wind and big cruisers traffic were the worst. Never got scared but wifey didn’t enjoy a few trips out. Moved up to a Convincor now and life is good. Couple more degrees of deadrise in a hull makes a big difference.

    I had a 219 Persuader and it was great. Very fun boat to own but it will beat you up in the rough. Check the floors under the front seat bases and around the back seat area.

    Try Flitz polish and a buff ball. That stuff works great.

    Would really appreciate opinions on props

    You could also try a Mercury offshore/ Vensura 4 blade. Think they run in smaller pitches than the bravos.

    350 Won't Stay Running Under Load.

    Sounds like it may be starving for fuel. If fuel filter was plugged as described, plugged with what? May need to clean out gas tank. Might be clogged fuel pickup/ strainer in the tank. Check that fuel lines are in good condition and not collapsing. Chedk fuel pressure at carb. Good luck.

    Fuel pump??? 500HP

    My mechanical pump went out a couple years back and I switched to a Holley blue electric & it works great. It definitely cured a hard starting problem after sitting for several days that I always had with the mechanical pump.
