Also I am a bit concerned about SS and barnacles/fouling ; what has been your experience to date & what did you have last time ?
I dealt with Terry Graham (production@). You might want to email
him for a price on two of the Slipstreams that meets your requirements.
I replaced the standard aluminium fixed 2 blades on my Yanmar
sail drives. Terry looked up the specs (gear ratio, displacement
line length) & suggested the correct sizing.
As to barnacles
& fouling. Our home marina in Innisfail is upstream in brackish water
where we don't have a barnacle problem at all, just slime & dirty muddy water in the wet season. I have not put any anti-fouling
on the props to date. Though after 5 weeks cruising the Whitsundays in November/December I have just scraped some long white worm like fouling off the props. Easily scraped off with a plastic scraper in the water (out at the reef as I don't get into the croc infested waters at the marina).
