    Hi Eric;

    Yeah, still around but have been so busy since I retired that it is starting to look like I will need to get a job so that I can relax! It's been a bit over a year since I retired and we sold the Seattle condo and bought a house up north. My daughter-in-law's gramps has a hangar in Concrete, WA where he restores/sells small aircraft. I hope to swing that way on my bike for a few days around Winthrop, Concrete and those towns, I'll give you a holler.

    Your comments about the 3-blade prop and so forth are like Greek to me. All I know is that the prop goes in the water at the end of the shaft and that it spins! Ha, ha... But I'll tell you what... If/when I decide to replace it I will call you for advice. It'll be a collect call if my wife keeps me flying back and forth between grand baby in VA and Blaine!

    Alright, good to hear from you. Please let me know next time you're in my area and I'd be pleased a great deal to show you our boat.

    Eric... I've been following the 138 replies re op without load vs with load, and if I post my question, there'll be hundreds of replies and someone will end up calling another an idiot... so avoiding that, your posts address the questions and they make sense...

    My question is about propping... I bought a 2005 Mainship Flybridge trawler last year... single 370 Yanmar and I'll have it hauled out this winter for bottom paint. While it's out I want to check the prop to see if it's correct for this boat. Do you know if there's a site or subject matter expert I can ask about the correct prop for this boat? I can provide specs and typical usage knowing that there are variables in propping...

    Thanks Eric

    You're welcome, Eric. I began to experiment with Photoshop-like programs when everything was manual. Actually, most of the detail work still is. I did my first boat as a joke to a friend, and I've enjoyed it ever since. If you start playing this winter, pick-up Photoshop Elements (about 75 bucks). It will do everything I had to do to your photos and more. If you want to go even deeper, the Photoshop CS program these days is probably 700 bucks or more, and is too big to learn in my opinion. I have Elements on a PC, and CS on my Mac laptop. I prefer Elements for anything but the most complicated detail.

    The new avatar looks great.
