Well just a prop and reduction run about 1200. What size boat do you have? I've got some deals on new vanguard and kholer motors. I would look at mudfish's fan boat. Were using a 3/8" push pull cable with heim joints on a sprocket/gear set up with an airboat style steer stick. Pm me for more info. Txba be prepared to spend some cash it will likely cost 2300-3000 for a new set ip

I really need a fan for my boat so I can stop eatting up troller prop blades on the oyster shells, but I'm trying to get a quieter genny and the noise of the fan would just defeat the purpose, wish there was another way to push a boat along than the traditional ways.

You could always use a sail!
