For 10 years now we have been sailing with a 2 blade folding propeller on the Saildrive and a Volvo Penta 2003 with 28 hp and every now and then I have wished for more power on the propeller in certain situations. Find here a report about the change from a 2 blade to a 3 blade Saildrive folding propeller.
Every year in winter it’s the same: either you ignore the propeller, which is soiled with lime and algae growth, or you clean it laboriously. All methods, mechanical or chemical, that I have tried so far have been unsatisfactory and tedious. This winter I tried it with simple vinegar essence (20%) and the result amazed me. Here is a short video about it.
