Re: Propeller drag test under sail.

MS, you are a marine mechanical stud. I'm surprised the lady posters here haven't suggested you pose for a calendar.

Way cool test. No questions really, just way cool.

Did you ever do any feathering prop tests? Max-prop procedure is..... neutral, engine off, reverse for a few seconds, neutral. It's a whole different ball game than the purpose of this test. I'm just curious what happens in real life if the feathering prop is left in reverse.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
