The Hydrobite series for the 3 blades propeller in the A series are available at Canada Propeller: 1-866-621-7767
We can help you select the correct propeller the more info we know the more accurate our recommendation Motor type and manufacturer Year and horsepower of motor Length and type of boat Any current prop info will help. Diameter, pitch and type of material WOT (wide open throttle) RPM reading..
Propulsion Kits Propulsion kits are available for all applications. While many boaters are familiar with the bodies of water they frequent, they can’t predict when they may hit a submerged object. In the unfortunate event that a boater does suffer an impact, a back-up plan is sure to prevent down..
All blades are now hydrobite design! Propelled to success Long fiber tough enough for interchangeable propeller blades A holiday conversation between Brad Stahl and his brother led to the development of an innovative motorboat propeller designed to reduce the cost of damage from strikes with underwater obstacles by employing interchangeable..
What is the difference between a 3 blade propeller and a 4 blade propeller? What is pitch? What do the numbers mean 15×17 ? Does materiel matter ? Stainless? composite? aluminum ? bronze ? Nibral ? What is RPM at WOT? What is the best hub design ? What does..
When propellers made of composite, or plastic, first came on the market over 20 years ago, I was very skeptical that they could match an aluminum prop in strength and performance. Today, while not all composites are created equal, a couple of manufacturers use space age composites to exceed the..
Pitch – the theoretical distance in inches that a propeller moves forward in one revolution. Think of a screw in wood. If you increase the angle of the threads, it will move further into the wood in one turn. Diameter – the diameter in inches of the circle that the..
Start of the boating season 2019 for those of us who experience a winter! A lot of us are waiting for the nicer weather to show up! Record rainfalls, lots of flooding and swollen riverbanks has delayed some of us from safely accessing launches. The nicer weather is coming soon..
Another title could have been Boat propeller Diameter on command trust or big foot motors. Many factor will influence rpm and diameter is one of them. I am seeing in the last several seasons some large pontoons being pushed by 60 hp engines that are command trust /or Bigfoot. This..
Of course! All propellers flex. What is often missed is that flex is a good characteristic. For example, if a prop flexed under the load of acceleration, it would actually be reducing its pitch, which in turn would produce a faster acceleration. A problem would occur only if the prop..
Most small dings or bends in an aluminum prop can be repaired for a reasonable price. If you do repair, make sure the shop does not file down the blade edges thereby reducing diameter. If your damage includes bites or chunks out of the blade, you should consider a new..
I advise boaters to spend as much as it takes to get the right propeller for their boating application. Don’t be too concerned with prop costs because the biggest bang that you can get for the buck, when it comes to boat performance, is with the propeller. Remember that a..
