4-107 Propeller


Glorious

Do you recommend the same size and pitch fixed 3 blade as for the 4-108? If so, between the 16x13 or the 17x12 which is preferred for old Glorious? She currently has a 17x10 which has seemed to over rev the engine at full throttle? This one has a 2inch crack in one of the blades and some erosion but no sign of hitting anything?

Either prop will work, but the 17" prop for a 1" shaft is a very hard one to find. It would have to be special ordered.


Glorious

Thanks Bud. I expect that 16"x13" will do the trick. I will let you know when it arrives. P.S. I talked to an old Forest Service buddy yesterday who was on your fire. I guess it was pretty spectacular. Hope they kept it away from your place.

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!
