    Default Impeller and Propeller Tech

    I was doing more cleaning in the garage yesterday and came across a Hot Boat Mag from 1989. This caught my attention:






    I thought the last paragraph was interesting. How does that sound to one of you racers ? I'm not sure 750 hp will get you 126 mph. If that's the case there are a lot of people doing something wrong

    I have pages marked in the magizine for boat manufactures that I was calling about buying a boat.

    No problem Tom , thanks for the PM.

    Hey just right click on them and save as a picture. They are scanned pages so you can't save them as if they are print.

Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Interesting, I wonder how much testing over the years has been done on 3,4,5 or 6 vein impellers and how or when it was determined the 4 vein was the way to go ?
