Do cleaver style props ever work on V bottom boats?

From what Iíve been told. On the West Coast, itís been tested on a twin engine Eliminator cat and also an Outerlimits SV29. Was told it picked up 5mph. The Merc representative seemed to be getting both boats confused during our conversation and it was hard for me to decipher which boat he was talking about. My main concern was the performance and handling on a single engine V bottom. He told me that there was no ill handling on the SV29 and there was zero modifications or setup changes needed. I know exactly which particular SV29 he was speaking of and that boat has a Merc 600 with the Whipple stage 3 kit on it.

Could counter the typical speed loss of going to a scx drive. Putting that on a regular Xr or sc lower seems like the recipe for some good size repair bills and missed boating.

I have been racing for over 20 years and I have never seen anyone use a cleaver on a single engine V bottom. Just thought it was a good question. So apparently they do. What would the advantages and negatives be?
