He should return to EVINRUDE ...
Oh I have forgotten that Evin has bad reputation here ...
Or maybe consider to check other propeller.

Mine with

VIPER prop 19" is fast, nervous, bow lifter a lot of fun on lakes
REBEL 19" has the same top speed, but more calm,not bow lifter but similar time to get on plane, better grip and behavior in the Sea.

Hi Matt, too early to tell, the boat has been loaded WAY above its normal load this week. I need to do more testing.

Thanks for update, keep us posted ...

For example mine boat is deep V (24 degree) but on the end it has 10 cm flat bottom ... so maybe it behave in different way than deep V to the end

Not had the boat out since Scotland Matt, so no further info at the moment. Next stop is France in a month or so, hopefully we'll get lots of testing opportunities then👍

Tweaking the Pig

I'm looking at buying a Solas 4 blader to try, I'll take it out to France & have a play with it.

I have this one as spare prop:


Made in Korea BS.PRO 14x20
I should change it to 14 1/2 x 18 or 19 I think.
But it works in 5 persons.

About 120 GBP
