Im thinking of buying a little river skiff to keep out all year. I have seen some tunnel hull props but do not know how shallow these really can run versus an outboard jet. Does anyone run both and can share with me some real world data? If the outboard jet would run in 4 to 6 inches of water would the outboard tunnel prop be about the same or not even close?
The only reason Im thinking of the outboard prop on the tunnel hull would be to save some money and give me a few more options for power. Im looking at a small aluminum boat here like a 1448 or 1648.
Im thinking fixing the outboard prop and replacing a broken prop would be easier than repairing the jet foot..or is this not true?
