Re: Beta 20 with Sea Prop 60 Saildrive
I think the transmission noise saga has finally come to a successful conclusion. Beta (and Beta Canada) stepped up to the plate and supplied a replacement Sea Prop 60 with a lower gear ratio and larger folding prop. I did the installation last weekend and once back into the water, there is no transmission noise! With the different set-up I'm also getting a half knot of extra speed at the same RPMs. It's taken a while but better late than never. Now I'm completely satisfied with the Beta 20 - Sea Prop saildrive setup, a quiet, dependable system with minimal vibration. Time to go sailing!
