Max Prop

I installed a Max prop on my 29' sailboat 3 years ago. I love it but I repowered this year and need to change the pitch and rotation. can you recommend a pitch. I was originally powered with a Volvo MD6A 10 hp. with a 1:1 ratio, I am now running a Yanmar 2QM15 with a 2.16:1 reduction. my prop is the 2 blade 13"

I'd call PYI rather than rely on this forum.

Exactly.. they are very helpful - and can make a recommendation if you have all the pertinent data of your repower - HP, gear ratios, boat displacement etc.

Their assembly instructions are on-line so the rotation part is easy enough. You just need a recommended pitch to make the final settings.

Re: Max Prop

Know also that you don't have to haul out to repitch your Max Prop. Any model Max Prop can be repitched undwerwater and PYI will happily recommend a diver in your area who is qualified to do it.

Re: Max Prop

PYI is also south of Paine Field in Everett!

Sounds like what I have, but do not remember the setting........
