Currently i have a 12G prop on the 40hp , full open taps with 3 on board she runs at around 46km/hr, she runs well however i think revs sound a bit low (Dont have a rev counter) so might need to prop her down a bit? Other than that very chuffed with the little boat, she can pull a tube and is very easy to launch retrieve.

Thanks for the feedback chaps. Half Pint no surprisingly it does not get hot at all, when its on the water the water i suppose keeps it cool.

True... Now that I think about it... Aluminium is an incredible conductor of heat.
