    Default Propeller Drive on shallow Draft Boat

    When the boat is static the propellers are only half submerged with an access hatch above dwl to access and change props. Apparently when the boat moves the tunnel fills up fully submerging the props, the 2 props allows smaller diameter. Max speed is only 9kts.
    Has anyone come across this type of set up before or have any information that might be helpful please ?
