If I recall correctly, the WOT was close to the same with the 21". It was the cruise that was different. I think at 4000rpm with the 21" we were getting low 30s in speed with the same fuel burn. ...

We thought the 21" would be better with the opti 250, but it turned out the 19" was better. Boat does 54mph WOT at 5400 RPM. More importantly, it cruises at 37mph at 4000RPM and 3.4MPG.

You will need to have it repaired. I do a lot of work similar to this, as I am a rod builder. You should be able to bring it in to a tackle shop and have it fixed for about $10-15. If you had some...

Simple. Two feet of leader tied with an albright. Done deal.

I like to have my knot past the last guide, so it depends how much hanging line you have with your typical casts.

I have had success with long and short, but I find that sometimes when my leader is longer, the fish strike the bird instead. Because of this, I like to fish a 6ft leader just like you are already...

How much drag are you planning on using? I know it is nice to have a reel that puts out 37lbs of drag, but if you aren't going to be using that much, it's not worth the money.
