2003 232 BR Interceptor, VP 5.7GL engine, SX-M drive, Solas 14.5 X 21 3B SS, unknown hours (new tach), Corsa captain's call exhaust, Tennessee trailer.
Slick as a whistle with some very minor dock rash above the rub rails, ran 57 mph speedo (no GPS) on the test run with 3 pass and 1/2 tank of fuel on the stock 14.5 X 21 3B Alum prop. Just got the SS prop based on prop shop recommendation. Ready to run it and see if they know their business. Been in love with the Interceptor since I first saw it at a boat show in KCMO in early 2004. This one is even the same color scheme. Been out of the boat biz for awhile, but happy to jump back in with both feet. Can't wait to get on the water with it. Was going to buy a 2006 Cobalt 250, but glad I found this instead. Wife is more comfortable with the size of the Interceptor and it was considerably more affordable. And the look...! Needed it like a hole in the head, but I wanted it. Here we go!

I tried to fix it for you. But it's pretty small.
Boatless, again.

First trip out today. Put 5 1/2 hrs on her, wot to 900 rpm low riding. Never missed a beat, no stumbling, quick to plane and 56.3 mph GPS @4500 RPM, me the wife and 20 gallons of fuel at the time. Fuel economy was very good, too, considering...
Think I'll keep the Solas 14.5 X 21P 3B SS prop. Jumped out of the hole just fine with a full tank. Didn't pull anything, but I don't anticipate any issues, given how quick it got out of the hole today. I did notice some significant vibration at low speed (1200 RPM and lower) on full starboard turns. Possible engine alignment issues or a bad gimble bearing? Any thoughts? Other than that everything worked as new on a windy day with lots of traffic and a pretty good chop. Wife stuck it on the trailer with her first stab at it, too! She's a keeper, and the wife is, too! :D

Thank you, Gamatt72! That's a hot rod you have there, too! WishI could've found a fuel injected version, but the carb runs very nice, too!

Regards!
