I am nearing completion of building a 55 foot plywood/epoxy Catamaran
in a small fishing
village in Malaysia
Although the locals are well versed in the building of wooden Sampan fishing
boats when things get technical it's hard to get advise.
I am fitting 2 reconditioned Nissan marine
SD 33 Disel engines as used in the Bayliner 3270 and the Nissan
Patrol and C 80 SUV's.
To accommodate the propeller
I will have to install the engines at an angle.
My questions are :
1, What is the maximum angle can I safely operate the engines
2, What is the maximum angle to the water
line of the shaft/propeller allowed.
Thanks for any advise you can give me.
