Default here's some pics

anyone have any idea what kind it is? I have no clue. It has a 3 blade prop on it now and it cavitates real bad right after you turn either way then go straight, will the 2 blade prop be better?

Can you get a transom shot in good light?
If it's cavitating in the turns then off-hand I'd say that the strut is too high and/or the prop is too small.
Sorry, I have no idea of who makes the hull as it does lok like several. Is it 'glas or plastic? It's hard to tell from the dark shots.

[img][/img]These are all I have for right now. I showed it to a guy last night and he said it looked kinda like an old sightler(spelling?) but he wasnt sure, hadn't seen that brand in a long time around here. The hull is fiberglass.

I still see the Sightler around once in a while so maybe it is. The shots are still kind of dark.
Being a sub-surface drive, it's strange that it's cavitating but possible.
