Or have a qualified diver do it and save yourself the cost, time and hassle of a haulout.

Re: Max Prop

By the way....I forgot.... EWOL props can be easily installed and set underwater, pitch setting takes about 20 seconds.

Replaceable bearing surfaces- great idea.

Re: Max Prop

Once the boat is back in the water adjustmēnts will likely be needed....other things are being done that require being on the hard. This winter refit will go a long way toward putting the boat in top shape. Looking forward to a long and exciting trip north next summer. woohoo!

Re: Max Prop

Your Ingrid is a bit of a special case with the prop so near the surface. I definitely would talk with PYI and see what they say, I assume they've done a lot of Ingrids in the past. As noted abvove, maybe there is some advantage to a 4 blade over 3 due to that.

Re: Max Prop

If "dripless SB" is another way to say dripless shaft seal, we were very happy with our PYI dripless seal. It worked flawlessly over 15,000nm and I think is still going strong with the new owner. Of course, a haulout is mandatory to put in a new shaft seal.

We had a Whitby 42 with an 80hp Ford Lehman, probably much bigger than your engine. I will be surprised if PYI recommends a four bladed prop but in any case I would go with what they recommend for your boat/engine/tranny. They are good people there in our experience and by reputation. I just wish the MaxProps were cheaper as I want one on our new/old boat.

What size do you need? I just pulled a 3-blade Classic in good condition off an Islander 36. The owner wanted a Martec folder instead. My guess is might want to sell it.

Thanks for the thought. That would be great if it worked out. I need a 16" prop for a 1.25" shaft.

The Islander 36 uses a 1" shaft, so no joy, unfortunately.
