[Amel Yacht Owners] Amel Santorin Propeller Question


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Lisa,
Have you dive to see how clean was your hull and propeller?
If not, is your boat may be more loaded than before?

Sincerely, Alexandre

I own a 1997 Amel Santorin with what I
believe is the original propeller, which
is a 3 blade bronze propeller.  As you may know, there is
no manual in existence for the Santorin, and the boat
definitely does not have a feathering prop, as indicated in
the Super Maramu 2000 manual.  Is anyone familiar with the
type of prop that the Santorins were originally fitted with?
 The currently problem is that we are losing boat speed,
but with no change in RPM or engine sound. Everything else
appears normal.  Does
anyone know whether these propellers are bonded? We are
wondering if the loss
of boat speed could be a problem with the bonding on the
propeller bearing? 
Thanks
in advance for any ideas.  I also have reached out to Amel
Caraibes (we are currently in Antigua).
