Re: Boat pulls to stbd moving fwd under power

Did it pull to starboard without the motor?

Did the diver check that the pitch had not inadvertently changed (upward) on the prop, or just look for obstructions on the hull?

Sudden prop walk going forward on a full (well, 3/4) keel IP is a significant amount of energy, something had to change to a noticeable degree.
