I am in Oriental today and spoke a guy here that said exactly the same thing about being overpropped. He said I can get my 3 blade
repitched locally for $75 or a new 2 blade
prop for $200. I thought they were much more expensive. I don't know the specs on my prop but was told it is likely stock as Pearson
is known for over-propping. I don't know if thats true.
The oil consumption was over approx 20 hours of motoring.
I ran at about 2900 for 3 hours this morning coming into Oriental and it ran fine and didn't squat too bad. I believe I'll deal with the prop until I haul out
or get somewhere that I can dive it.
