    They tend to paddle wheel and have a lot of transom lift on a light boat. Be careful.

    I guess it depends on the boat and what your general "day on the water" activities are like. My Brother ski's with one and says it's nice for that application.

    I would think they would be crank breakers on hypo motors. See them being good for pulling so yeah should work good for those type applications.

    cant see them being crank breakers surely they have smoother loading than a 3 blade?
