I recently purchased a sailboat that has a Volvo
2003 series engine
installed, built in 1985, however the boat is missing its propeller
- I'm looking for information on what sort of props boat owners are using?
The sailboat is a 35' Pretorien, which has a fin keel
and skeg rudder
, and weighs about 15k lbs. I think the original prop may have been about 16" in diameter, but I don't know the pitch
. I've also been considering feathering props - What are considered reliable brands?
From previous experience I know it can take some trial and error to get the right diameterXpitch, even after you run the programs and do the calculations - So I would appreciate input from others!
