We started out 3" above the bottom. The boat bow steered. I didn't try a 5 blade because more blades causes more transom lift and that was already the issue. The top speed was 120 with 16% slip.

It was actually in 2001. Dennis K was my contact. We had rigged a 30' Checkmate with a single #6 and big power. You subsequently did a couple more for me at Bblades.
