It’s critical to get the prop deep enough so that it doesn’t over-rev, but if it’s deeper than necessary it will pointlessly increase the effective draft of the boat, removing one of its great assets – its shallow draft. I’m not aware of any W sailors who use a long-shaft outboard, but I’m sure there are some.
