Not from an angle where you can see straight on.

Here are a couple of shots that better show the drive depth. I don't know if this is high or low.

I finally got the boat off the trailer and replaced the brakes, lights, bearings and all of the old black rollers that were marking up the hull. I had the hull wet sanded and buffed to get the marks off. Now it's getting a few gel coat chips on the strakes fixed.

No. That was with TRS drives. The root cause turned out to be operator error. It was the soft link between the wheel and the controls.

I like the Konrads so far. They are a little shorter so 5 blades get up on plane quicker. I'm looking forward to getting rid of the weight of the blowers, freeing up space and not having to worry about something going wrong with the Prochargers. I don't need to go all that fast anyway.
