Default setup... need your opinion

All you pros out there......Tell me what you think .

I'm gonna run a submerged drive on a 48" V hull "Screwdriver", powered by a Magnum XL .91, matched with an Octura X457 prop.

How does that sound?

Here's a pic of drive setup. (forget about prop on the pic)

That's an airplane engine, right? It won't work well in a boat...go for a motor that is designed for a boat. Better cooling, higher RPM = Higher top speed.

Josh,

the Magnum 91 I'm using is a marine water cooled engine.... not an airplane engine.
