    A propeller, is in all reality, just an unhoused Water Pump Impeller. How well it is able to push water backwards is the result of how well its Designers understand the Laws of Physics, proper selection of Materials, and correct selection for the Application.

    Correct. Can’t beat real world testing. No way that would stand up to a well pitched enertia from mid range to wot. Not a chance.

    The high 5 wouldn’t stand up to even a good ally black max for pace.
    as for a 6 blade pushing more water. Not sure that theory is sound. Less blades the better, if physics and hydrodynamics have anything to say about it.
    not sure this is considered a 6 blade ? Is it ? Anyway. The test annoys me. They reviewed another almost identical hull with the same engine. The weight within a few pounds too. They used a 18” for that set up. At nearly 50 mph recorded. Why use a 15” here ?

    I finally got to see the prop test. It's an infomercial for sure, a fairly boring one at that. I may have missed the data. Does that Sharrow prop have more, less or the same surface area than the same diameter 3 blade props? I think they said "Sharrow prop" 1000 times.

    Something I noticed. Doesn't Michigan have boats to test? You can't swing a Cat in Michigan without hitting a boat. The Bayliner they tested has New Jersey registration I.D. on the hull. They trailered a boat all the way from NJ? Maybe they piloted it there through The Welland Canal and right past our shack by the sea.

    Mmm. Busted. Literally almost identical boat in weight and size. Boattest review. Strange they run an 18” enertia with the same engine and almost like for like boat.
    also notice the huge difference in wot speed too.

    pull the other one boattest. So disappointed

    just sit back and relax, grab a beer if you got one, we all know QBhoy will have to buy one so we can see a very detailed test vs enertia and laser II next spring.

    I look forward to it!
    Haha. You know me well...it will need to wait though.
    I just got myself a new 20” enertia for the outboard cuddy !! Wish me luck.

    No you didn't

    Boat test.com sent out an email this morning about their "Most Extensive Test', with the same patheticly flawed Video

    I volunteer. Need an Mercury/Quicksilver compatible 11 spline, 10 3/4" X 10 or 11" pitch.

    I may give the first testimonial which is sorely lacking on their smoke and mirrors website.
