No more cavitation! Amazing improvement over long shaft on standard Tiki 21 setup. Highly recommended.
The extra 5" on the leg of the SailPro models is definitely worth it! The fact that the 4-strokes run so much quieter doesn't hurt either.
Wow Roger, that looks the part. It looks high up, how much more depth does this give you over your old Honda? I have dropped my transom 6 inches to get my Honda deep enough, which creates some compromises. I look forward to hear about your adventures.
The prop is 5" deeper. I can't believe how much difference it makes. I can now plough through chop standing on the front beam, and it won't ventilate. It also has a lower gearing and a bigger prop with a smaller pitch which also probably helps a lot.
Ok, my prop is around the same depth as yours then. I don't get any cavitation and it work very well with the Honda BF5 LS. However, I was only able to achieve this with as I completely rebuilt the platforms and transom. My (slight) disadvantage is the box (which is now bigger and has a hatch in the deck for storage) is lower to the sea and can get slapped sometimes.
