Propeller

Postby Sirius » Mon Feb 25, 2019 2:39 pm

I have the standard Volvo Aluminium fixed 3 blade 14x11 LH prop fitted. Volvo part no 21381260. Next year I will need to replace the propeller and am now considering options. Any advice on the following would be appreciated:

Is it worth fitting a folding prop? Hull speed is only around 6.5 - 7 kts. Does it really make such a difference ... for the price!

Does anyone know of a good source for a Volvo propeller or a good quality lookalike?

Thanks,

Tony

O.k.
I use a Flexofold 16x10LH folding Propeller with zwo blades.
It works very good, but my motortype is a Volvo D1-20 with 18hp.
