Re: running on one engine to save fuel?

Plastic Sheet for interior use

I expect to have some heavily discounted rigid plastic PVC/CPVC sheets available to me this spring. These sheets would be similar to starboard plastics though not designed outdoor applications, and would weigh a little more.

I worry about transmission damage, and know a stopped prop will introduce drag. Some opinions are to secure the shaf...
