Mowjo Posted July 16, 2008 Share Posted July 16, 2008 Anyone know how to work out propellor sizes, My Freeman was built for the Thames so it's a bit over propped for the Broads even though it's spent the last twenty years on them, my problem is that even on tickover the slowest I can get it to go is around 3mph, so when I get to places like Ludham I end up having to go round in circles, or take it out of gear then I have no control over where it goes, got minds of their own Freemans, I presume a smaller prop would solve it even though I'd use a bit more fuel, but I can't work out should I get a smaller prop or would it cure it if it was the same size with a different pitch,,unfortunatly I have no idea what size prop is on her as I havn't had her out of the water yet,,, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
