Max prop on a saildrive

I had a saildrive on my Laser 28 and thought there was a lot of prop walk for the size of the engine and prop. I had also experienced the same on a boat that I raced as well. Discussions that I have had seems to suggest that there is a bit more prop walk because if the vertical prop position but like other things in boating I can only assume that it is heavily dependent on the installation.
