    I worked on a jig for soldering up the prop. I used metal for the base but the rest is wood. I
    will see if it will hold up long enough to get this one prop in. Metal work is finally making
    an appearan...

    John,Not a goose chase at all. Its nice to have ya lookin out for me. It would be bad if you
    were silent and I made a bad prop. I didn't pick this shape for any other reason than I found a
    good pictur...

    Thanks for the link for the prop jig. That will be what I use to set up mine. It's going to be

    John - Ok I will remember that. So work is going well on the prop I think. I am not looking for
    every last bit of thrust from the blades so researching the hydrodynamics of a blade are not on
    my list ...

    I appreciate the ideas, and yep it is what I should do. The engine will raise up some because
    it has been pointed out that this little engine will coat the belly with oil and water as it
    runs so a cat...

    Andrew, that would be the better way except I want to keep the engine weight as low in the hull
