I've got a pair of Bravo1 30's (4 blade, quite a lot of bow lift) and a pair of Mirage 29's, not so much bow lift (but a tad faster on my 28)

Thanks John, would they fit on merc standard shafts? My engines are high so am struggling to get any bow lift at all! would turning the props in instead of out have any benefit? I guess if props don't work i'll have to bite the bullit and cut the transom

Maybe some more setback would help?

They're all solid flo-torque hubs, for std merc small shaft fitment. Not sure about thrust washers on your motors.

... cleavers wont lift the nose, theyll lift the back, usable on very light boats with natural bowlift like p16 racedeck with empty bow and xr2

... youll need 14,5" diameter, try jons bravos if possible and the mirages will also be worth a try and if they wont work at that height, try the good ol smallear-choppers, which would be my first choice in that engine height, in worst case try the bigears
