What size prop do you use and what rpm are you getting, i presume its a semi cleaver or something like that

2 adults and 2 kids on a Tinker tramp + 3.3HP Evinrude = 3.5knots at half throttle and 4 knots flat out!

Spent the last half hour looking for a 15-25HP for my eventual 380 Aerotec purchase!
