The problem with full suits on tall, thin people (like myself) is not having short arms and short legs but rather than the torso is too short. A baggy wetsuit is not a warm wetsuit because it lets...

The OJ XMP 13 x 11.5 3-blade is generally considered the direct replacement prop for the stock 13 x 13 Legend prop. It definitely has larger blades and apparently pushes more water, which is why you...

It has the standard cup for that prop -- I don't remember what it is and I don't know if the original prop is cupped at all. If it has more cup, would that affect only the WOT rpms?
