Which drive type, if properly set-up will be the fastest? Let's say we are talking about a 36'+ cat with Cord's dream motors.

Hey Cord,
You gonna try and make it over to Hardy Dam in a couple of weeks? I haven't seen Foul on the board much lately and wondered if he found a motor?

Craig
Any surface drive (Arneson, BPM, SCS) is going to be faster than a #6. Basically, only half the prop is in the water resulting in less drag. The exception might be a #6 configuration like the 36' Bacardi Silver boat which utilizes a rudder for steering and fixes the drives with an X dimension constructively creating a surface drive (albeit an expensive one).
