I was able to take Lupus out sans mast and with a fairly flat sea and was able to stretch her legs a bit. I noticed that she needs a little help getting on the plane and staying there. I think the prop pitch is good for an Ali and will be looking at a stainless steel 4 blade next year. However I'm thinking of getting some Doel Fin outboard Fins to lift the bum a bit.
Id be interested in any views or information of people trying them. Or if you have tried a 4 blade stainless prop.
