Islander 28 propeller location from shaft support?
I'm going to replace my prop shaft, its bent, worn in grooves, and appears to short. My prop is within an inch or two of the shaft support. I bought the boat with an electric motor, and the prop shaft has most likely been moved forward to connect to the electric motor or the shaft may have been shortened.
So, I know prop to hull clearance is important to performance and noise level. I have a 3 blade, 12x 10. The electric motor likes props similar to diesels.
I was going to get a new shaft and prop set up.
So, I was wondering where most if the 28 guys had their props sitting from the support and rudder?
What size and type prop the diesel guys have?
Your input would be greatly appreciated
