Prop Choice for the Helms 30

I know this is an old post (I just found it). FWIW, I did a pretty through analysis after measuring clearances and taking other of the boats parameters into account, and ended up with a 15x9LH Martec elliptical prop. It has proven to be a good choice over the past 33 years for my boat with the 12HP Yanmar (YSB12).
