prop help

Thanks Manos ansering your questions

- It is an alloy prop, probably the original, a bit tatty on the edges of two of the blades, it has not been tampered with repair wise, but seems to be far from knackered
- It does not over rev at all when excellarating
- How can I tell if it is mounted high or low?

Arlon thanks for your help too

Regards

Elizabeth

OK but if I were you I would take it to a prop repair shop to check it any way. The speeds you say that you do are quite low.

Ask the people who manufacture the boat how high or low the cavitaion plate should be from the end of the hull aft.

Now may be there is something more technical than all this theories and if nothing works and you still get the same speed etc IMHO is best to take the engine to a HONDA (Proper AUTHORISED by Honda) engineer and you will solve (most probably) your problem

Good luck
