  • New to me rinker 1998 232 owner

    Well I took the plunge this past Saturday and bought a boat. I've been shoping for the past month ... ever sinceI my last one got stolen and stripped. I must say it was a shock going from a 17 footer to a 24 '. the boat is gorgeous! I may be a little bias since I own it...lol it has the 7.4 with bravo 1 outdrive with a 19* pitch prop.im sure we will be getting alot of use out of it... except for the toilet .. I cannot see my butt fitting in that small compartment!

    I have a 1995 232 w/ 7.4 (300 hp) and the 19 pitch would be to small a pitch unless you have a higher ratio drive then a 1:50. You need at least a 21 or you will over rev.

      the toilets are usually for the ladies....

      I agree, a 19P is a bit low on pitch.
