Prop walk with a Max Prop

I love prop walk. It lets me manuever the boat in ways that I could never duplicate if it were significantly reduced.

For example, most single-screw boats will turn left inside their own length, because of prop walk effect.

Rather than spending two thousand bucks on a propeller, Drop $20 for Chapman''s and read the section on boat handling under power. Make it work for you.
