Re: Am I under propped?

I think I may have them fixed now. Thanks everyone for your patience and walking through this issue with me.

I have a haul-out scheduled for mid December to look at the props, and address the stuffing boxes and transducer.

Re: Am I under propped?

Paul - think it is an issue with the post itself, or Bjanakos may have posted the pictures in in a way that they are password protected or not publicly shared, or they may be shared publicly but he has shared 'private' links. I can't see them either. Aint that a fine howdy do https://img.youtube.co...

Re: Am I under propped?

Went out today for a run. I brought my fathers SnapOn tachometer tool and validated the starboard tach is pretty much dead-nuts-on. Here I am at 700 RPM - Both engines engaged - Barley 3 knots. Its usually somewhere just under 3. We were right at a low slack tide and winds were light an variable. Re...

Re: Am I under propped?

Don't know if possible but could your diver just read the numbers off the props, that might tell the story for sure.I had 360's and was under propped at 14 pitch, repitched to 16x16 and all was well. I'm curious, were your symptoms similar to mine? The diver said he would do his best, but it's a di...

Re: Looking for One Specific Trojan Boat

You can start with Washington State. They may be able to provide whatever public information is available related to those numbers. The name on the second photo does not show up on the Coast Guard documented vessel search, otherwise it would be a slam dunk.

Re: Am I under propped?

Silly question... are you measuring speed with GPS or onboard speedo? Well, I usually just wet my thumb and stick it out the window. :mrgreen: At the 2800-3000 rpm (10-12knots) speed does your wake look something like this (shot from the fly bridge)... Or is there a much bigger 'hump' right behind ...

Re: Am I under propped?

Thank you.

Both engines in at 600 RPM idle speed, I'm around the 4 kts range, but wit one motor in gear, I can easily do 2kts or less in dead calm conditions. But I'm not even coming close to those kinds of numbers on the top end.

I'll save this for haul out and check those props.

Am I under propped?

I bought by 1978 F-32 when I was fishing up north in Lake Michigan. The main fishing tactic there is slow-trolling for fresh water Salmon and Trout. Trolling speeds of 1.5 - 2.8 kts are common. We also didn't have to travel very far. Now I am in the Gulf and wanting to fish costal and off-shore. For...

Re: Great Lakes water levels

It will go back down again. I remember Lake Michigan being up like that after a few mild winters and everyone was blaming global warming and environmental disasters. Then it dropped 8 feet and everyone was blaming global warming and environmental disasters. Then it came back up to normal levels and ...

Re: F32 engine trouble

Sorry for the simple question... have you ever gone above that and if so, what is your maximum RPM achieved and speed? Anything changed since then? ^Valid question right there. First thing I would consider is a dirty bottom or running gear. Beyond that, hedging that your mechanics are in good runni...
