Hello, I am new to sailing and in the process of buying
a 1989 Beneteau
First 285. The current propeller
(a 2 blade
folding) is worn and since I will not be racing
my boat I would prefer to replace it with a 3 blade
prop for better control.. Shopping
for a 3 blade
prop has proven to be much more complicated than I imagined and I could use a little help.
has a Volvo Penta
, model 2002, 18hp with a 25mm shaft and a gearratio of 2.37.
Can anyone recommend what pitch
and prop diameter to look for in a 3 blade propeller
for this boat ?
Thank you in advance.
