I have W42 with Perkins 4-108.

The original transmission was a Velvet Drive 2.57:1 rotatio.

The yard installed a what they though was a duplicate transmission but in fact has a 1:91 ratio and reverse rotation.

Now that they have discovered the problem they want me to consider repropping with a smaller prop with a with a direction of thrust matched to the 1:91 to 1 tranny.

Is this an acceptable solution?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
