Re: euros 39 nprop size

Massimo,
Your question could have a very long answer...prop sizing is not an exact science.. You need to know your gearbox ratio and check the shaft diameter and taper are correct. Also know your max RPM and HP of your engine. Use the waterline length, beam and displacement and google "prop size calculator". It sounds like the prop may be suitable but these calculations will help you.

look around in other forum for information, the only one helpful was a guy with
an euros 41 which he mont a prop 19 x 15 on his boat with a janmar engine and
he is quite happy.
Calypso
has the original volvopenta MD21B with the borg warner gearbox...can some

us?
