    2.4 ghz wavelength is so small it gets absorbed by water, especially the roostertail from our gas boats.

    Most Chainsaw engines turn the wrong way and are heavier than trimmer motors. Would be great to see someone do it but if your trying to save money then stick to the trimmer motors or X force as...

    Beautiful boat there. Sad to see. I would buy another Lazer and transfer everything over. You have all the good stuff in that one and anything less will be disappointing.

    RE: High Lift or Not?

    Never seen a gas boat run a 60mm prop. 65 yes 60 no, (unless it is subsurface)

    Try a X470/3, or Prather 275 or 280.
