    spelling corrections, Fountaine Pajot 'Athena 38'

    2 x 3ym30 yanmars on sd20 drives, 1300 hrs each
    currently yanmar matched fixed 2 blade 16x12 props, very efficient across the rev range according to experienced owner (merchant navy seaman)

    Hi Jim

    in the process of buying a good weel kept Athean 39 cat, no downsides other that its in Darwin and I must get it to Sydney starting May when the Insurance window opens.

    I hae a lead on an UNused Flexofold composite prop, a 3 blader at well under 1/2 price, of course I'd have to source one more but still a good saving

    Current prop is a fixed 2 blader @16x12 , the FoF is 16x11
    however the extra blade area surely makes up for 1" of pitch

    thoughts ?

    (id rather the 100% bronze FoF, but it appears the innards on the composite hub are bronze)

    in any case my major concern is the "one inch less" pitch which is really only less across 2, the extra 3rd blade is all "more"

    Dear Jim,
    could you solve the issues with your Vesper Marine Watchmate?
    I have exactly the same problem.

    Dear Jim from vk2ezq Ted.
    A member has PM me about my boat for sale.
    But the forum will not let me send him either my email address of my phone number as it says I am suspicious activity. How do I get a message to him. KBDozz is his moniker.

    Hello Jim and Ann,
    Sandy from yacht “Sundowner” (Joshua ketch). Rondi and I cruised with you many years ago. We divorced in 1999, sold the yacht, and I've been a NZ citizen since then living in Nelson. I was out of yachting for 10 years, but 2 years ago bought a NZ built Cavalier 32 for local cruising. I’m enjoying being a skipper again with my girlfriend Sara as crew. Good to see you and Ann are still here in this crazy world.
    Cheers,
    Sandy Fontwit
