Re: Folding prop help

Is the prop clean? A neighbor of mine could only do 2.7 knots on a calm sea at full throttle with the new boat he bought. One dive later, he was doing 7.5knots at 2400RPM.

Check and make sure the prop is clean before making any drastic spending decisions. Even a few barnacles on the prop can make a HUGE difference.
