Finaly had the time to complete the transom mod(+5 cm), sea trial today. Plan was to do it with my new 13 pitch Turning Point prop, but that failed, prop has a casting error, its not symetric(touches the gear case in a certain position.
So had to do it with the original tohatsu 11 inch. Acording to my car navigator, reached 43 km/h (23 knots)with 2 persons, otherwise light load. Pretty much what expected, boat handling well, but had too low preasure in the air flor, it was moving a lot.
Expect to get abt 27 knots with 13 pitch, and dont think need more than that anyway.....will revert when getting a replacement.
fun on a boat is inversely proportional to size...sort of anyway
