Question Prop

Ok folks, at the risk of sounding more stupid than normal... I was speaking to richie about my boat/prop. At the mo it's got a 24" Michigan wheel, and it's about as good as a chocolate teapot.

Now, I have a 24" chopper, and I'm thinking about having an omc hub pushed in and trying it.

The boat is a big old heavy liberator! Needs bow lift, stern lift, and a general diet!

Anybody think or know whether the chopper may work?

Thanks in advance.

Stef.
