I'm at the very beginning in researching the possibilities of installing a controllable pitch propeller
on a largish (62ft) long range adventure type motor
yacht. The first thing I'm sure of is that I have no intentions of replacing the entire drive chain. That being so, does anyone know of a prop that can be hung on a conventional shaft that is either self adjusting or can be adjusted from the bridge. I'm looking primarily, to increase range at a given speed, say around 8 knots, though cost is a limiting factor to some extent. The cost may be off set by fuel
economy but at this stage I don't know enough to be able to even speculate. I'm reading everything I can get my hands on, both on and off the net, but this is a large reservoir of hands on knowledge and I'd appreciate your input. Thanks in advance.
