  4. Hi guys, My 2013 285 ssx same hull I believe , with the 430 hp 496 mag ho , no cats ...would constantly hit the rev limiter at around 58 to 60 mph gps on 26 p. Had some issues with the larger prop and found out that the props had been cupped ! So I guess the 26 props cupped are the go ,at least on my boat . By the way , I'm in Australia . Soul.

  8. Hi guys, Thanks for all the helpful info , especially the bit about the different cushion and cover bit ! I really wanted it more as a grab rail , so I'll look into modifying something. Many thanks again , from the great land of Aus ! Soul.

  11. Hi guys , After literally scouring the world to import a boat into Australia , I purchased this about 90 kms away from me ! 2013 285 ssx with 430 ho Merc b3 with 38 hours and all the bells and whistles minus air and gen! Always been a Searay guy , I'll now see what all the fuss is about ! Looking forward to it too! Soul
  12. Thanks guys , Is there any chance some one could help me with hieght measurement on trailer on a 275/285 ssx? The boat I am looking at is without trailer . Many thanks , Soul.
  13. Thanks guys , Waiting on a survey etc... Hoping it's a good candidate ! A lot of bow riders here in Aus , but cuddies are rare. Shipping works on cubic meters. Worked out on extremities of the "parcel" dimension in a cube . Hence if I could remove the arch it saves around 3 k in shipping . Soul.
