    Thanks for reply. What do you think about the use of a surface propeller for a professional fishing boat.

    I will second Ad Hoc's comment - if surface piercing propellers were 'good' for fishing boats, they would all be using them.
    If you really must go fast, use water jets - many fishing boats have these, and they are tried and tested.
    But the most reliable propulsion for a fishing boat is still the most simple and straightforward shaft drive.
