    Hello Jack...
    Beautiful Crackerbox...
    Interesting what you said....I built mine over the summer and keep in mind that the crackerbox is a little squirrly to begin with...mine is a Zippkits and the 26cc acts like its too powerful...and I can never use full throttle...but to be honest I haven't been able to fully adjust it either.
    I have a Bob Austin 3 blade prop...7016/3
    #101724...and the Right prop...well thats a multifaceted question..in my short experience with boats..we can have the same boats ..but driving styles, how the boat was built and setup will dictate what prop works best...
    But off the bat it sounds like its too loose..by either the strut is not right or the balance is off...about 34% is where it should be...nice idea about the engine cover...
    I hope this help...there are several here that has Crackerbox boats and perhaps someone else can add there experience....
