The easiest way is to upload your video to YouTube then you can attach the link to the video on your post

I do not use YouTube, I am getting too old for all this tech stuff, so I will not bother to put the video's on, its not important, I think I have it sorted, may reduce the size of the prop, as when I turn port or starboard the extra drag really slows the boat down, so even though I have a large motor I think the 58 mm 3 blade is making the motor work too hard as it does get warm after 5 minutes running, so maybe with a smaller prop the motor may run faster as well, I suppose it will be like changing down on a hill the revs go up the engine has an easier time.

Hi Richard, if its the boat with the 850 motor, your prop is massive, try a 40mm 3 blade or 2 blade, a rough guide is no bigger than the motor diameter.

Thanks Mark, after Dave and other comments I guess that is correct, I think I will be getting a new propshaft and smaller prop, but after the festive season.
