Type of propeller interested in

(MKIII Folding, 2 or 3 blade Slipstream stainless steel geared folder, 3-blade S-1 Autostream stainless steel Feathering, or 2-blade fixed)

Current propeller type and size

(fixed/feathering/ folding, diameter & pitch)

In what country was the boat built?

If not built in the United States then please determine the following additional measurements:

Taper on the shaft

Shaft Nut Threads

Shaft Diameter (please indicate whether in millimeters or inches)

Size of Keyway (please indicate whether in millimeters or inches)

 

Which one of the following choices best describes your vessel

Fin keel with shaft & strut installation

Shaft exits directly from keel

Prop is seated in an aperture

 

Check for prop clearance by measuring from the end of the shaft nut threads


The amount of clearance from the tip of the blade to the hull should be 15% of the overall diameter of the blade, i.e., a 15" diameter prop will require 9-3/4" measurement from the center of the end of the shaft to the hull.

Radius of one blade: .......7-1/2"
plus 15% of the diameter: 2-1/4"
...................................=9-3/4"

Distance to hull (with blades open)

Distance to rudder (with blades closed) If prop-shaft is offset, distance to nearest "hard-over" location

Distance to skeg (arc of blades when opening)

Please Note: Martec folding propellers will set further aft on the shaft than most fixed propellers
