That is a good question.. I would expect it to be a variable answer depending on if you have a blast plate or not? Too close with just the fiberglass and it starts eating away at the fiberglass? Which I think brings a second variable of the prop itself?

To be clear I don't know the answer... Just thinking out loud of what the variables would be.

There's a few variables. V-drive angle, horsepower, prop size.....and more.

Mine is a little less than 3/8". It's pretty close!
