Streamlined Propeller Repairs!

On Saturday we used the boat for the first time after having the prop blue printed by Streamlined Propeller in aldershot,
It runs sooo smooth now, no vibrations, handles perfect,hole shot is awesome now as well, you can feel when the prop bites it really pushes you back in your seat!
Has made a tremendous difference, Really pleased with it!

Geoff at Streamline first measures the pitch In 6 different places on Chord's D, E, F, G,and H, for each blade,
Then inputs all the data into a computer to work out averages etc, then he works out what the pitch should be at each point on the blades,he then works his magic and makes all the blades the right pitch, then thins, balances and sharpens the blades.
He also gives a print out of before and after of the pitch at all the different points of the blades.


So, If anyones thinking about getting their prop done, I highly recommend these guys, they really know their stuff!
