Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Fwd: Re: Volvo TMD22A specs
Danny, Pertaining to this subject, I have just received an email from Flexofold after requesting a quote on a folding prop .I had sent them all the engine and trans specs., and told them that my max rpms was 3000 and I now have a fixed prop 21x16 LH . They proposed a 20X12 and stated that 21 "looked to big" and that would allow me to reach the full rpm potential of my engine , 4500 rpm. This ladies title is export sales manager , I almost believe she chose the prop , rather than a prop specialist . I wrote her back that reaching 4500 rpms was not , nor should not be the goal in selecting the proper prop size/pitch. Max torque is about 2500 rpm . I am not instilled with confidence , and will be looking at other props. FYI , I cannot install an Autoprop as my keel was not modified to except it ,as later models were.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
