I think the boat will be faster and a better boat with the 1.5’s. My plan is to change drives or atleast change gears at some point.

Curious as to what the responses will be. I've always set mine with zero toe or as close as I could get.

1/16-1/8" in. Meaning less distance at the nose than the prop shaft. Just the way I do it, not necessarily right or wrong

Ok Jamie, so what's the benefit of running the drives slightly toed in verses dead straight? School me because I've always wondered.

I believe this "number" is fairly accurate but in or out may depend on which way the props are spinning? Not sure, just putting it out there.
