Well, one prop isn't going to achieve any great discounts, however if someone suggested that there are now dozens of P22s in private ownership looking for a sensible price of props for there boats, then it might be worth there while in targeting us and substantially under cutting Lancing. They might even be willing to lend us a volvo prop to investigate once and for all if these props are suitable.

The one other query I have at the moment is the cone on the back of some props, does it do anything for performance?

Pete

Pete
I would have thought that it will reduce drag when you are exhausting gas through the prop. this drag would be useful but not on this set up.
I will ask for a quote for 5 props and see what happens It is interesting to see that Sonics 17 prop is 185 which makes 400 ish from lancing a real insult Des

Interesting the fact about Dana. This is a US company that manufacture rear ends for mostly Chrysler automotive products (in fact, it may well be a Chrylser company). Well engineered. Came across their products when racing US tin tops.

Dear Des, Pete et. al.

Done the deal and bought the 1991 P22 I first fell in love with, having had a good look at a couple of others in the meantime. All life should be so simple!

Am off to the gym to grow some muscles, then over to Halfords for some big spanners!

Many thanks for all the help and advice.

Issue number 9127 - though I may also call her something slightly more romantic when all's going well with the usual fallback of f**kin' floating kennel! or similar when things appear less than rosy.
