    At some point, the prop diameter requires the shaft angle to increase and the prop no longer can be square to the plane of the water surface.

    Do the tige boats max out at 30mph?

    Depends where the engine/v-drive is mounted. Moving them forward can reduce the required shaft angle.

    But takes away cabin space.

    Is tige killing it with a 2:1 versus a 1:76?

    True. Have you seen the cabin space in some of the new boats? A Supreme ZS232, 23 ft boat, has barely more cabin space than my 20.5 ft Mondo. Look how far forward the engine cover is.

    And that is a huge negative

    Yep, that's one reason I'd never consider that boat. $110k, and way less space than a similarly priced Makai.

    Then when the prop diameter get that large you run the potential for drive shafts to shear off like the G23s had issues with there for a while.

    I think the sweet spot is 1.76

    But then they’ve increased prop shaft diameter to take care of this. Granted they did learn the hard way, but it’s fixed. For the most part.
