Re: Islander 28 propeller location from shaft support?

The I28 I was on had a Volvo MD7A, which Volvo rates at 9.6hp @2600 rpm fwiw. And I have a note on the old PHRF certificate that it was a 12" Martec 2-blade folder. Doesn't mean that was the best choice--but it did work well. No idea what the pitch on that was.
