Just an update on the prop issues.
After much toing and froing, (the toing be a lot slower than the froing) we have finally made some progress.
I tracked down the Propeller
Specialist, (that's his name and he is a throughly pleasant chap who also goes by the name of Steve.)
Anyway, Steve visited the sleepily seaside town of Mandurah on Tuesday morning when most civilised people are still tucked up in bed
, rapidly assessed the situation, diagnosed a distinct lack of pitch
as the issue and promptly made the required adjustments.
Aquila was back in the water
after less than an hour in the sling and 2200 rpm now produces 4.5- 5 Kn/h which is fine.
So thanks everyone for all the suggestions and help. We did check the transmission
and a bunch of other things from the suggestions, everyone's input was much appreciated. It's great that so many people took the time to respond.
Right, summer is coming. I'm going sailing!
