That sounds good. Whereabouts in Falmouth did you get yours repaired?

Everyone seems to have needed repairs at sometime. I would love to know what you've all done to wreck your props?

Now you have me thinking. I can give you directions but I can't remember his name. Strange really considering the number of times I have been there.

I've noticed the huge improvement in the SABBC web site since you offered to run it!!!
It was the barman's fault, if he'd have refused to serve me with any Guiness it would never have happened

They still haven't managed to get hold of the uh..'webmaster'.. so we're still locked out!

ive got wot your getting

I have had a 5.85 Ribcraft with the Suzy 140 since April

Speed (measured with a Simrad 33 Chart Plotter)

1 up 39.8 Knots
2 up 34.4 Knots
3 up 33.2 Knots
4 up 31.7 Knots

It has a Suzuki Stainless 22 pitch prop

Fuel economy is great for a boat 1 litre to the mile approx
The Boat is fine I have a slight Gel Coat Crack in the corner of the well
One seat has a light wear and tear rip by the hinge

But with Ribcraft you know they will never question a fault and repair it without any hassle.

Definately get wear strips down the sides a double a frame and the ocean console.
And a roller on the bow for the anchor rope.

Just do this

1. Remove kill cord and ignition key.
2. Remove cotter pin with long nosed pliers.
3. Undo Castle nut (you will need to wedge a lump of 2" X 2" or similar between engine leg and 1 prop blade to stop[ prop turning)
4. Remove old prop and washers.
5. Clean up spline and apply new waterproof grease.
6. Put on New prop and any washers.
7. Do up the Castle Nut as tight as you can with a convention ratchet handle ensuring that you leave the hole in the spline in line with the grooves in the castle nut.
8. If yuou have one use a new stainless cotter pin. (you can re-use the old one but i find that after straightening them and re-bending them a couple of times they usually snap.

New prop arrived and now fitted.

Water wasn't conducive to perform a proper speed test (rolling waves) but we gave it a go. It definitely picked up a lot quicker.
Got up to 36.5 knots...pretty quickly : )
Hoping for some flat water so that we can give it a real blast.

Thanks for all help and advice.
