    what would you guys recommend for windows. my intentions is 3/8" temp/laminated for 3 front and 1/4" laminated for the rest.

    I think the 7" ports already on are 1/4" temp/laminated

    Does that last photo show the aft end of the keel as square or is it a shadow?

    It will decrease thrust and increase vibration. That is caused by each time the blades are behind the keel. With a two blade propeller it can be quite severe.

    Thought it would be just more fuel use, that sounds severe, one more thing to take care of b4 putting in.
