Nice! It's so onerous to seek good quality data on the web at this time from educated sources, it is all wannabe's and reused content material with just a few exceptions. I hope you keep up the nice work and I seemingly be back to learn extra of your posts sooner or later!

I fibreglassed the whole boat finally and now using car filler to make it all smooth it will probably be another 2-3 weeks before it hits the water hopfully all goes well.

thinking about going there it is a 40min drive for me. But mainly im not going there yet it because it only goes like 40-45kph and all the other boats there go double that speed. So once it get it to go faster i might go there

You need to get a prather prop with lots of pitch on it , they have great lift .
maybe you need to try a 3 bladed prop also with lots of pitch . if that doesnt work you can try using a flat it of thin ali and stick it on the stuffing box ( it acts as a ride surface to get the bum up )
I use this on my nitro hulls , its great .

i ordered a few bigger props from hobbyking and i will see how they go.
Is there a way you can adapt the shaft because my shaft is 4mm and all the octura, prather props etc are imperial sizes?

I tried high performance models but they have turned into an online shop so i called them for advice and they said they will call me back and they haven't.
I think it would be hard to change the shaft to 3/16 because the bearings are 4mm maybe if i had a lathe.
