Prop advice for stepped 50kn 8.2m diesel rib
I'm new here but have been lurking for a while. I run an Arctic Blue 27 with a double stepped hull, 350hp diesel and bravo 1 x diesel drive. She's 3 tonnes on the water and does 50knts.
I'm currently running a 28P Bravo 1 prop and was wondering if switching to a 3 bladed Mirage Pro would increase the top end a little. I've also been led to believe its normal to up the pitch by 1 when changing from Bravo 1 to Mirage Pro?
With the 28P Bravo 1 she runs well at max RPM at WOT at normal load.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
