ENDED - BRUNTONS PROPELLERS GIVEAWAY- ends Sept 9, 2019

At Cruisers Forum we are pleased to offer members the occasional Vendor Giveaway Prize, which we hope will help our members learn about the sponsors who support our community. Our goal is to create ways for members to engage with our sponsors, earning a chance to win a prize donated by the sponsor. We feel this will provide the sponsor a unique opportunity to embrace our laser focused audience and provide our amazing members an easy and free way to win some gear!

A special thanks to BRUNTONS PROPELLERS for providing the prizes for our latest Giveaway:


PRIZE: 1 lucky winner will receive a $500 discount toward any Autoprop or Varifold propeller, or a SigmaDrive anti-noise and vibration coupling.



Sponsor Information:

BRUNTONS PROPELLERS: Whatever type of vessel you require a propeller for you can be sure that Bruntons will have the solution – not just any solution but exactly the right one.



Bruntons Propellers design and manufacture every type of propeller in regular use today. There is therefore no reason for us to try and sell you a folding propeller when a feathering type would perform better on your boat. For the cruising yachtsman there is the Autoprop, the world’s only auto pitching propeller which would provide you with highly efficient motoring and motor sailing using lower revs and less fuel while still feathering for less drag when sailing. So efficient is the Autoprop when motoring some displacement motor vessels are now fitting them.

For the cruiser racer yacht owner there is our folding propeller, the Varifold. Regularly fitted by some of the World’s top yacht builders the Varifold, thanks to its unique design, provides not only excellent performance motoring or sailing, but also considerable reductions in noise and vibration under engine.

If a new propeller is not a requirement at the moment but your yacht suffers from noise and vibration problems a Bruntons SigmaDrive could be the answer. With models available for virtually any type of craft, sail or motor, the SigmaDrive is an award winning solution that is easily fitted and also ensures that your seals and bearings are always perfectly aligned, reducing wear and guaranteeing a longer trouble free life for all associated components.

To enter, simply do the following:
  1. Visit the site Bruntons Propellers
  2. Select a product you would like to own or think would be an awesome addition to your boat!
  3. Copy the URL of that item from the Bruntons Propellers Website (the web address at top of your browser) and paste the URL into a post in this thread/discussion.
  4. Include a few words in your entry post about why you would like to own that item and how you might use it.

That's all you have to do, BUT you must do both things.




More Rules and Info:
  1. Any member of Cruisers Forum may enter.
  2. Members can only post once in the contest thread, so be sure to check you have included the link AND short statement about the item and how you might use it or why you think desire it before you post!
  3. Entries without links will be disqualified.
  4. Members who have made a mistake may hit the red triangle to report the post and alert the moderators.
  5. Members must post a link back to Bruntons Propellers product page.
  6. On the last day of the contest we will close the thread and randomly pick a post (or posts) in the thread, that will be the winner. We will use Random.org to choose a number between 2 and the last entry number (seeing the first post is the announcement). Whatever number is selected equates to the post number that wins.
  7. No purchase is required to enter.
  8. We will announce the winner at the end of the thread and close it again.
  9. Members who break the rules will be disqualified!

This contest will end on September 9th, 2019
Winners will be chosen at random at the end of the giveaway

New feathering prop would be nice.

Sigmadrive would be a good upgrade for our boat.

Cheers

The lagoon that we purchased comes with the factory fixed prop. Have been thinking of upgrading to a more efficient design. It would be great to get an auto prop as it would meet all of our needs

I'd love to install a sigma drive on my sailboat.

I have a V drive transmission while the prop shaft log is directly below the engine causing it to be impossible to manage and maintain any shaft seal(have a pss dripless). Having the sigma drive would help eliminate any sort of alignment issues and unwanted vibrations that I currently have

we have an old 2 blade prop on our Islander Freeport and the auto pro would make a massive difference

I would feel better with a new autoprop. I bought and rebuilt a BB model - the new ones look a bunch sturdier. Just waiting till spring to install it.

Re: BRUNTONS PROPELLERS GIVEAWAY- ends Sept 9, 2019

Drool....SigmaDrive please. Just the thought of not having to worry about getting a perfect alignment and the potential wear and tear it could spare a boat makes it a very attractive option.

I already have an Autoprop on my boat, a Catalina 470, and love it. A Sigma Drive would be a great addition!

I'm currently designing a motorsailer and this would be my choice of prop for it.
