Re: SV: SV: [campernicholson] Folding Props
- WE got the Autoprop and installed it at last years' haul out. It really
cut down our prop walk and made backing up a lot more predictable! There
was no problem with space. The one we got was much smaller than the 2
bladed one we had back when we had the Watermota, tho', so maybe that's
where part of this discussion is coming from. We notice a lot more power
from our Yanmar 38hp. We also discovered on our last trip, that we may need
to adjust the pitch a little to get the best from the combination. Our
prop guy turned the shaft to a standard American size/pitch at the prop so
we could avoid buying a semi-custom 1 3/8 inch prop, too!!
Any questions, just ask!
