I plumbed in a crossover pump since I don't have a surf system. Changeover takes 5min so we switch whenever. For <$200 it's easier than someone getting left out and lowers my stress.

Are you going to pull your rub rail, or try to work around it? If you're leaving it on, duct tape will work better than painter's tape for protection.

It's more like trying to qualify the different penis types which exist, their properties, and what general preferences can be observed. But I leave that exercise up to the audience :D

As an engineer I'm all for empirical data. This is pretty meaningless to me without a better understanding of how it was measured, though. Some questions:

One of my boat regulars has a Bryant boat and he was looking at adding the swim step thing... It's a really nice boat, but I'm not sure I would put more money into it vs just upgrading.

I noticed a bit difference on my XLV. The OJ cavitated, the Acme 1235 doesn't, and it pulls harder overall. I prefer it over the 14.25.14 and over the OJ 5-blade.
