Re: Real Time Thrust Tests with Complete Boats

how are you guys measuring the thrust? I know my dad used some sort of gauge used in aviation to compair his old boat with a stick prop and 6 blade warp back in the day and the results were night and day he said it worked real well for him, just curious how your doing it

Re: Real Time Thrust Tests with Complete Boats

car motors have more thrust because they have gear reduction,the AVERAGE car motor does not have the torque an A/C has I'm sure some will argue but it won't change that fact take away everyones gearbox and you will see alot of stuck C/M boats

Re: HP and Torque

Re: Sensenich NGH Series

I had a 14' AGI hull with poly I know they slide good. What I don't understand is my boat broke loose sooner with the NGH.

Re: sensenich NGH recomended or no?

I went from a 3 blade H to NGH the NGH has less noise and performs a little better all around. If you want more push for running the hill you better get a Q.

that's right. but if I wanted a 16' barge I would have a car motor with belt drive and big mufflers,I cruise at 1500-1600 rpm with my boat and like how queit it is :)
