We put our boat in the water today and motored to our slip. First impressions of the Indigo prop are very positive! We have tons more forward thrust. It almost feels like we went from a sailboat to a motor boat! The RPMs are higher and the Atomic 4 sounds so much happier and smoother. The other prop really bogged down the engine and didn't allow it to get to top of its performance curve.

More impressions later.
