Correct, about 25 couples to be exact (50)

We talking about behind the prop (thrust washer) or in front of. I ask because Lee quoted me 25 for a thrust washer as a spare, that's unbelivable!! If you want and you'll have to get in fast (off to Austria next week), I could turn you up a thrust washer/s of any thickness in mild steel, with a lick of spray paint would be OK for the weekend wouldn't it?

Pete - Saxon probably good as they have pontoons ar right angles. Isn't Hythe slip a bit green though - don't want to send Mike A over T!

What we need - in an ideal world - is a slip with a pontoon immediately alongside. The best I can think of is the slip in Yarmouth Harbour.

Andy - 25 is a bit steep, innit! My spare wasn't that much. Great offer of yours, only I don't know the dimensions of what we want!

We'd be interested in trying a Laser 2 in 23 inch pitch if anyone has one.
Not sure if we could make it that weekend though.

Mike what does yours rev to with the ali?
And what are you hoping for as a max?

Pete would know the dimentions, Only really want to O/D, I,D and then I'd make several spacers of different thickness, would be helful if someone knew roughly what thickness and I'll take it from there. Can't do splines though!

The 23" ali was getting to a maximum of 3,800 rpm. The 21" Titan did do slightly better at 3,900 but the recommended WOT for the Merc 1.7 is 4,400. The boat was fairly heavily laden... ie full of fuel but the week earlier I had 5 people on board... and a full tank. I didn't check the revs then but it was very laboured then!

Gents.... and Loiuse....

I must bail out now... Early start in the morning, but lets see if we can have a good prop swap the w/e after next!

GOOD IDEA

I HOPE THERE IS A CHEAPER WAY!

GOOD NIGHT

With our standard 23 inch ali the engine will just about over rev with a light load, past 4,400rpm so were looking for a new stainless to bring it down a bit.
We were advised that the laser 2 is usually for petrols, but this is quite a high reving diesel so i think it should be fine.

Goodluck, and let us know what you decide on.

AFAIK we're talking about the tapered (thrust) washer between the prop and the gearcase - Pete?

Here's a picture of my spare - for Yam prop on Yam engine.

OK catch you later. I just suspect that we may be limited to swopping between similar engine types.
