Re: Lycoming o360 Angle Valve Prop?

I had the NGH on my old 12' full deck & ran dry no problem and it was nice and quiet. Boat ran in the low 70's. All around great prop.

Re: Easiest way to make 350 run dry

id definitely go with a 2 blade carbon fiber over the warp! You will be able to get a good push & the ease of pitch in the woods will make a world of difference when your adjusting it trying to find that sweet spot. :florida:

Re: 13'x8' step hull for BIG POWA
