    Pot: thanks for asking. i need to run a jet on it, and that requires a tunnel. i ran a jet before w/out the tunnel, and i had to run the foot too deep to be of any real use. the tunnel will allow me to run shallower, among other things. i have a mud buddy on it now, and that does ok, but i still hit the prop now and then. cheers. john

    I posted a company that made a Florida flats style boat with a tunnel, posted in canoe section a couple years ago. They used a tunnel with a prop.
    With set back, and a lift my prop, on my 21 ft Scott HB I used to own was above the bottom of the canoe at speed, did not cavitate.
