I wonder if dropping my ladder might slow me down at idle, my boat idles at 4 to 4.5mph If I could only find a smaller pitched prop for it, it makes navigating a channel like that a challenge. I had traffic like that coming in from after the fireworks on the 4th, I had to make a few 90's to keep clear of traffic.
