Re: Tartan 37 Propellor

I put a 16 X 11 two blade folding from Varifold and it makes about 6.2 knots at around 2200 RPM's and approaching hull speed at 3000 RPM's. I went from an old Martec two blade folding that was a 16 X 12 with similar forward speed but the difference in reverse is amazing. There is a few discussions over on the Tartan37.com website on the topic if you're interested.
