Hi Ben,

I have been testing the prop over the last three weeks while on holidays.

Results:

Prop is extremely smooth, beautifully balanced with no vibratration through all revs.

At 1500 rpm speed is 6.1 knots

At 2000 rpm 7.4 knots

At 2200 rpm 8.0 knots

At 2400 rpm prop cavitates

At 2600 rprm Flat out and cavitates.

In reverse the prop walk is less and handles as well as the fixed blade.

Ben it has made a huge difference to the boat, I always cruised at 2000 rpm at six kots with my old fixed blade. This prop has made my boat come alive boat motoring and sailing. I am getting approx 1 to 1.5 knots additional boat speed while sailing, with the prop folded I have no wobble through the steering wheel smooth wake and the boat just feels geat. We were doing 7.8 knots upwind in 10 knots of breeze yesterday, magical.

I would be happy to write a testimonial for you if you want.

I know the prop is not quite getting the required revs but it is such an improvement its a real joy.
(Note from Seahawk, the gearbox ratio supplied was incorrect, we will be adjusting the propeller when Mike next hauls the boat for service).

Have a great day!

Regards
Mike.
