Lee the owner has been researching the lean when we go wot. turns out we are making too much power for the blade combo he has.
we are running too much pitch on the blades but it is the pitch required to hold the engine back to 5000rpm.
he has to get another blade and a 4 blade hub and then we take some pitch out of the blades so more of the power goes toward pushing the boat rather than twisting the boat.
it is always exciting when you are "making too much power". they are telling him it will be a lot faster with the right blade set up.
this is not all that different than setting up a car. you can tune it to make a ton of power but then you have to figure out how to use the power. kinda neat.
