    I remember a 19' Daytona that had this done. I don't think it ended up working well.

    That's right, for some reason I thought it was a 19.

    I remember that thread. I wasn't altogether convinced that they tried all that hard to work the kinks out... One or two additional props. At least from the limited information that was shared, that was my impression.

    I've read a ton of reviews over the years and it seems they usually work very well in most instances. I look forward to having first hand experience, sometime.

    Thought this video was intriguing...
