The first thing I immediately noticed was the rudder/prop design which is so absurdly wrong that it is amazing this boat was even built. If I am following this thread correctly, the OP has already bought this boat and painted it and did not even see the rudder/prop issue as being a concern? His concern has something to do with the paint
job? Is this what is going on here? Furthermore, it appears to be a tiny two blade foldable or feathering prop that looks as if it could hardly push that size boat--and it appears to draw at least five feet-maybe more. Are there any anodes?? if so where? Is that a steel
nut against a bronze housing? Is it sufficient and should it have a cotter or a second nut? I do not know but....I would be less concerned about the paint job and more concerend as to whether this boat can maneuver or power properly but that seems to have not concerned the OP. Any other ideas?
