with the 21 inch pitch and the 5 blades doesnt it create alot of preload on the engine? Im under the impression that outboards required a certain amount of "slip" to get them into the torque range for pulling skiers out of the water? Hence I went for the 19 inch 3 blade, But For cruising during the winter Id be happy to throw a 4 or 5 blade prop at it just to see what it does performance wise.
