Question
Sterling 63 foot Chris-Craft

I have two questions. Number one: Quoting specs supposedly from the manufacturer" it has speeds up to 20 miles per hour with options of twin or triple Chris Craft or diesel". Would this mean that it could have three screws ?I doubt it.???????. Question number two: I notice a great difference in the angle of the stuffing box/prop, between the motor driven version versus the scale version. Is the angle of the motor driven version dictated by the ease in mounting the engine at the point shown.? The question could also be stated( and this is my primary concern) it seems the center of thrust of the scale props would be more compatible with having the boat properly planning the water as opposed to the power models center of thrust wanting to make the boat nosedive.
