I reckon they add a lot of stress to the leg and increased drag.just my personal opinion, if you read the other posts in this thread there seem to be a consensus that the fins don't work very well on the 2452. It worked for you though.

Maybe this one worked because its a much smaller fin design? IDK... the larger trim tab drop fins would be a better alternative as that outdirve fin does nothing at idle speeds...

Maybe, but my marina guys would have a fit if I put larger fins in the trim tabs, I already get in trouble from them if I leave a tab down. They hate them.
To make this make sense, I keep my boat in a dry storage marina using fork trucks to launch B)

Why do the marina guys give you trouble if your tab is down? any logic to this? :unsure:

they stick below the bottom and one should always lift them before trailering or dry store...

Go with the force. . . . If you are thinking about the steering it will all go wrong.

Semi V hull... if we had a keel, it would not wander... so having the trim tabs down helps (not eliminate) wander. Larger ones do a better job than the OEM.

Most of us anticipate when we need to turn the wheel a tad. If you are constantly steering, you will wear out before you get to your destination. Allow the boat to self correct and add just a touch of steering when the boat does go well off your intended direction. You'll look some what like a drunken driver but you won't be as frustrated...

Nice Boat!

I just bought a 2001 (Apollo Beach, FL) I am looking to add a new Yammie kicker and I like your set up. I have the same full dive platform with added down rigger and out riggers. Is your Yamaha controlled from the helm or externally at the motor?

Any suggestions would be helpful....I am a new member to BOC but have owned several much larger boats.....

Thanks,

Tony

I have the T9.9 Yamaha as a trolling motor. Great motor! It is controlled by the Garmin Gold autopilot which is certainly the ultimate in convenience.

Recently had a custom camper top made for my 98 in preparation for a 7 day trip on the Trent Severn Waterway. Had a great trip and the top was a awesome purchase.

So, I did a search and maybe I missed it, but is there any way to clean monkey fur? Overall it's in good shape but it has a couple of areas that are stained. I'm guessing a carpet cleaner like resolve won't work. Any thoughts? Thanks

Walmart carries Attwood Mildew and Stain remover for about $7.. spray on, walk away and come back after a beer or other beverage. It will either be gone or almost gone. If needed, spray again and have another beer... that should do it...

I never found UK mildew remover in the least bit effective. The American stuff is probably much stronger.

I use flash with bleach . . .

www.amazon.co.uk/Flash-Spray-With-Bleach-Pack/dp/B0046U8JI0

But there is a public health warning here: You need eye protection and very good ventilation or else you will get bleached lungs!

I spray the stuff on liberally and then scrub with a nail brush. I then use a Vax vacuum cleaner to suck up the foam and then rinse with plain water and suck-up yet again. And that is the only effective way I have of cleaning monkey-fur. Monkey-fur is amazing stuff and doesn't rot when using this approach. I've been doing that at the start of every Summer for 6 years now.

So I bought some bolt on drop fins from Bennett. I had to trim 3" off the leading edge to have them fit onto my 9" tabs. Kit cost me $30 US, plus 25$ shipping and $20 duty to get them up here into Canada. Total was around $100.00 Canadian but wow what a difference. Went fishing with them for the first time this weekend and it was hands off trolling the entire time!!! B) Was able to focus enough on fishing to reel in a 22lb and 12lb Chinook Salmon as well as a 5lb Pink! a Great day :lol:

Very nice fish... can't believe how nice the weather gods have been in the straits... I was thinking of scooting across from Sekiu and landing a chinook over there since our fishery is closed for them... Been limiting out on coho however... Have not bothered looking for pinks... Will be up in Sekiu till the end of Sept fishing every weekend... last three are wild and hatchery coho... can't wait...

Those drop fins are amazing...

New to this forum, but I've owned my 01' 2452 for 4 years now. I have to 5.7 with the bravo 2. With full fuel and 3 people loaded, the boat still struggled to get up on plane and needed tabs down most of the time until above 3600rpm. Last year, I had to replace the lower unit and decided to go with the bravo 3 (Dual prop.) All I can say is Why did they not do this from the factory? It's a whole different boat. I switched from the 21 pitch single to 22 pitch dual props. The boat hops up on plane with or without tabs (better with the help of the tabs) and runs on plane at 3000rpm.

Just got back from Labor Day Weekend cruise, which I was fully loaded with fuel, water and gear, generator, cooler and along with the better half's closet! We ran at 3400rpm, no trim tabs and were going 26-27mph (GPS). I fueled up when we got back and averaged 11 Gallons per hour. (I've upgraded to a 4bbl carb, which was kicks in above 3200) So for an average trip without all the extra gear, I could easily run under 10 GPH.

I highly recommend the upgrade for anyone that has a bravo 2 outdrive and needs to replace it. They bolt right up without any changes at all. Also, the "Bow Walk" is greatly reduced, which is great for those of us who troll!

Not sure what I am doing right?

I own a 01 2452XE with the Thunderbolt 350 (carburated) with a Bravo II. I am running a 17x19pitch prop and have -0- zero, none, notta problem getting on plane with this combo. I rarely use my trim tabs to plane, only use them once on plane to level out.

I normally carry 3/4 to full gas tank, full H20, and with 4 on board no problem. I admit when I have 3 grown men on the back it takes a little longer....but nothing I would consider alarming.

Out of the hole I use 3/4 throttle, nose pitches up, and before I can get to 3400rom I am on plane and backing the rpm's down for cruise (2800rpm with 19pitch) at 24mph.

With the 21 pitch I removed for reconditioning, getting on plane was a little slower, but I could cruise at 24mph (GPS correct) around 2600rpm.
