I like the Gori on my boat and there is no noticeable prop walk and the "overdrive" setting makes motorsailing or motoring in calm seas a lot more efficient, at 2000rpm I hit 6-7 knots and very little diesel usage.
On the downside, I have had 2 run-ins with lines in the water, once a thick fishing trap and another time last month I ran over my own dinghy painter. In both cases the rope cutter did an admirable job of cutting away the rope remnants but in both cases the Gori was partially fouled and unbalanced and wasn't fully functional until I dove on it and removed the blockage.
