NOT that it does not take HP to move a boat BUT IMHP I think there is a massive misunderstanding of just how bad a standard prop is

Because 4HP moved the 8000# Cal 29 at 4.5 knots and while the now healthy A4 will go 6.5 + the stern sinks above 5.5 knots


The biggect issue was NOT sinking the motor while crossing some BIG barge wakes in NYC

They use pretty much the same system on Jboats Up to the J29 MHOB

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