The wheel does have a knob/handle on its rim to grip when spinning it - perhaps the tranny shifts normally and the wheel "fine tunes" the pitch of the prop?
Hmmmm, you are correct. I did not look beyond the wheel.
Now, I am not certain or to put it clearly, "I have no idea." SMIRK

Some controllable pitch setups have a simple clutch in / out for a true neutral. Otherwise the shaft and prop are rotating at all times the main is running. And if the main's RPM is higher than the desired shaft RPM a transmission is required.

I like that explanation. SMILE Thanks for the save.
I saw one old boat with just the controllable prop. If he wanted neutral, he feathered the prop. I watched him going fwd to reverse and he worked that wheel like a Chinese fire drill. SMILE
He had a one cylinder engine so the engine sound was "ca chug, ca chug" at idle and the frequency increased as he increased the throttle. It was an air start engine.... he cheated, he had a SCUBA tank to provide the air. LOL
It was a very simple system and no transmission to go bad.

Found this 40' "diamond in the rough" on the Nordhavn brokerage page. Not much in details, but would be worth a look if one was willing to put in a little work:

https://nordhavn.com/brokerage/listi...2-susan-marie/

Me-thinks it's overpowered and the fuel tanks are too small, but interesting anyways.

My CP experience is limited to one boat. It was a challenge in close quarters. The pitch was controlled by a hydraulic pump chain driven off the prop shaft. So at idle response to pitch change was painfully slow. At higher engine/shaft RPM it required a delicate touch on the pitch control.

And at a "flat" pitch there was still significant prop walk.

That boat gave me quite a few humbling lessons in boat handling.

That definitely is an odd ball. Nicely rounded stern, good balance, but looks like spray rails on the bow and 450 HP? No doubt, an interesting boat.

Hate to say it, but she is gorgeous up close. I didn’t call the broker for a closer look as I’m too scared it could lead to stupid decisions. [IMG]Click image for larger version

Alas, that is the only pic I took. They did not offer a tour and in fairness, I didn't ask to see the interior. I have thought of walking around Anacortes to see if it's still there but just have never done it. We have never stayed there on the boat, so...I am still a working stiff.

I am trying to convince my wife we need a boat on the East Coast and the West Coast. [emoji23]

But look honey, it has a fireplace!

I wonder if it comes with a slip?

For some foolish reason, I still look at all the boat pictures you post here. I am greatly relieved to discover most of the ideal boats are located on the west coast and I am on the east coast.
I don't go to the boat shows for 2 reasons. 1. I own a boat 2. My walking has become slower. I have come to the conclusion, the person who said, 'Growing old is fun.', never grew old.

Maybe, but the alternative is worse.

That's why Canada has restricted/limited access to medically assisted death.

Ooooooo... that's a nice looking ship. I think the only thing I don't like about that is the Christmas wrapping paper linens. Everything else looks great. That's a lot of boat for the money, too. Hell, it would be financially irresponsible not to by that boat, CD.
