The HT prop pushes more because it allows the motor to reach its rated RPM at which point it makes 8 HP

You would need some type of handheld or tiny-tack to get and idea what RPM your reaching to make a good prop pick as i know even when pushing my J24 the stock prop was way to big and the HT one for the 4-6 HP series was massively better


I have never had a whole lot of luck with the stoping part using and outboard

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
