Conclusion

Hey,

Yesterday I installed the new paddlewheel. Went for short motor and the speed gauge now works. It appears to be a little slow compared to the GPS. It was 2 kts slow going with the current and 1 kts slow going against the current so next time I will calibrate it.

FYI, the old impeller looks fine but is noticably harder to spin. I will try sanding the shaft and sides of the old impeller to see if that helps but the new one solved the problem.
