RE: motor sailing summer 2011

Hi Ralph,

Are you near Vancouver? Both Dan Pease and a new member, Keith Olive have Horizons. Have you posted pics of you and your boat in the photo gallery? I invite you to do so. Yesterday I spent 3hrs in 3' seas getting home to pick up my wife Christine at the ferry today. Very little wound up on the floor but it was tiring.*

RE: motor sailing summer 2011

willard,

It's 36hp at 3000rpm. It can be run faster and develop more power (even 50hp) but the Perkins in our Willard boats are rated for 36hp at 3000rpm. If you have the original pitch on your prop (14") top rpm will be only 2750 to 2800rpm and at that engine speed your Perkins will only develop 31 to 33hp. 13" of pitch should deliver very close to 3000rpm. You should be propped to 3000rpm.

Eric
