With a light fuel and water load I am seeing full RPM 3540 and 3560. Can anyone provide what propeller specs that you have and performance data you are seeing.Thanks
I get 3650 light load and 3550-3590 under heavier loads. Sea conditions can impact too (strong winds/currents).
Best to use a place that will computer scan the props before AND after any work is done and give you both printouts.
Let us know if you find the specific specs. If you cant find them I can try to dig out my last computer scan. You always want to have both props done at the same time and matched to one another.
There are all sorts of pros and cons to adjusting propellers in certain directions. Really depends on your application, intended use, etc. Some may opt to have props adjusted for better slow cruising/fuel efficiency while others may want higher cruising speeds.
