Propulsion Kits Propulsion kits are available for all applications. While many boaters are familiar with the bodies of water they frequent, they can’t predict when they may hit a submerged object. In the unfortunate event that a boater does suffer an impact, a back-up plan is sure to prevent..
All blades are now hydrobite design! Propelled to success Long fiber tough enough for interchangeable propeller blades A holiday conversation between Brad Stahl and his brother led to the development of an innovative motorboat propeller designed to reduce the cost of damage from strikes with underwater obstacles by employing..
What is the difference between a 3 blade propeller and a 4 blade propeller? What is pitch? What do the numbers mean 15×17 ? Does materiel matter ? Stainless? composite? aluminum ? bronze ? Nibral ? What is RPM at WOT? What is the best hub design ? What..
First the best way to improve performance is with the correct prop. You can try all kinds of different props with different types of blades styles and cupping and diameter and weight in the boat and water and wind condition and you will always get a variety of results..
The most asked question at the boat shows is almost always” what is the difference between a 3 blade and a 4 blade boat propeller” The difference between 3 blades over 4 blades is that the 3 blade (smaller blade ratio) usually goes faster and the 4 blade (higher..
The Difference between PowerTech Stainless Steel Boat Propellers and Piranha Composite Propellers PowerTech stainless steel boat propellers are among the fastest and strongest propellers on the market. These stainless steel propellers have been manufactured for over 34 years as a durable and secure propeller option. Piranha composite propellers made..
Have you ever run your finger along the face, or edge, of a prop and felt a pitted area? If you have, then you know what cavitation can do to a prop. Given enough use, that pitting will only get deeper and you will end having to replace the..
Boat propellers are available in several materiel, pitch and diameter and the expert at Ace propeller can help you select the correct boat propeller that will work best at the altitude that you are boating at .Many factors can reduce your RPM in many ways I.E. upgrading to better..
As gas prices continue to creep up we are getting more and more enquiries from customers on how to improve performance with regards to fuel efficiency. A slightly damaged blade where the leading edge of the propeller has been damaged by running through some sand or gravel. The propeller..
Finding the right prop for your application is not as easy as you may think. In fact, it is our experience that proper prop selection is one of the most difficult tasks in boating to make sure you are getting optimum performance. Mistakes can be costly in terms of..
When propellers made of composite, or plastic, first came on the market over 20 years ago, I was very skeptical that they could match an aluminum prop in strength and performance. Today, while not all composites are created equal, a couple of manufacturers use space age composites to exceed..
I advise boaters to spend as much as it takes to get the right propeller for their boating application. Sometime it means Stainless ( 300hp and up ); sometimes it means 3 blade ;sometimes it means 4 blade; Don’t be too concerned with prop costs because the biggest bang..
