Just curious, but did Joe Demers go out of his way to sell you a Beta 25? He told me I didn't need a 38 or 35 and should go with the 25. I didn't fully agree with that, but I rebuilt the W50 in any event.

Hi, Sorry for the late reply, just catching up. Joe tried to sell me a Beta 30, I disagreed and went with the 38 and I'm glad I did. The extra power comes in handy pushing against a tide or running an inlet. He was also a little full of himself, and although he answered all my calls and questions, at times he seemed annoyed and looking down his nose at me. When I questioned him on the Beta38 size he said I was just wasting my money, I disagree. My economy cruise is roughly 5.25k @ 2300 with a new 16 Max Prop pitched to about 11' to get full RPM, I can easily motor at 6k plus, as RPM reaches 3600. I sent him pictures of my install and got no reply. Beta also had no info on the W-33 to Beta conversion, I also offered and they were just not interested. I'm very proud of my work, and had a great 5 week cruise this summer in New England, not a hiccup.
