If you’ll get MORE speed by dropping diameter, shouldn’t everyone drop diameter? The question about why two inches wouldn’t be better if one inch is definitely good is totally valid.

How can...

I’d imagine designing a blade to be weedless costs something in terms of thrust. Free lunches are rare, (in engineering, if not govt).

I was in TX when I started on THT... user names by locations or boat (or both) seem like a good idea at the time. Now the TX and the 17 are both false.
