    I don't know, I asked him to send close ups of the shaft and axle. I do believe that is a 1100 cc on that boat. He sent me a good few pictures.. On larger motors, it looks like they mount them more forward to help keep the right balance in the boat. I'm sure that is all weight and length dependent.

    The frames for mounting are adjustable they are made as much as possible able to accommodate most engines. The pivot point is adjustable for ballance.

    I could give u the diameters, but I have no idea on the pitches. Given my boat weight, hp, rpm, I was recommend to try these 5 props by a real nice Thai guy that owns a shop selling longtail supplies. He himself doesn't race, but offers tons of knowledge, I cannot thank him enough. I deviated from the traditional racing design to fit my needs a little better. I will post pictures and fill you guys in.
