That will depend if we still sail and not get use to the better performance under motor power.

Re: Better speed under power for E-32

So I pulled the boat to do a bottom job and check out the prop. The prop is a 16" 12 pitch but needed to be reconditioned and the shaft and cutlass bearing needed to be replaced.

test run and we were able to do 5+ knots against a strong current

Mario, running it responsibly, maybe 6 kt in reasonable conditions, I think I get about 1/2 US gallon an hour. This is the kind of consumption I got when brining the boat home from Cleveland to Toronto, two summers ago.

Re: Better speed under power for E-32

Thanks all , We will be pulling the boat when we get to Annapolis and I will see what prop we have. I was going with what the PO said when he told us the prop was new and what was best for the boat. It was painted with an anti foul clear coating and looked new so I never ? it untill I was told that others with the same engine was getting better speed.
Ritchard do you know what you fuel consumption per hour/ mile is?

Sounds like the beginning of an expensive race...

According to Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, "Keeping up with the Joneses" is an idiom in many parts of the English speaking world referring to the comparison to one's neighbor as a benchmark for social caste or the accumulation of material goods. "Keeping up with the Joneses" simply means to strive to match one's neighbors in spending and in social standing

Re: Better speed under power for E-32

There are prop sizing estimators on-line, and any supplier will be happy to make some recommendations based on displacement, HP, boat type and RPM.

Re: Better speed under power for E-32

So, to ask the question that Mario will likely ask next...how do you pick out an appropraite 3-blade prop?

Re: Better speed under power for E-32

4 knots is ridiculously slow for a well propped 32 footer.. is everything clean? Are you getting up to your max rpm?
