Re: [Amel] Propellor
Thank you again Jean-Luc. Very interesting reading. I'll let you know what I decide on after I have a Volvo service mechanic look at the engine one more time.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

performance was noted. After repitching the fixed prop I was able to
get 2850rpms, but only 7.5 kts. After only a month I am now only able
to get 2650 rpm with the same prop. KRISTY is on the hard in St.
Maarten getting a new bottom paint job. I'll be interested to see if I
