Steve helped me solve a vexing problem with my boat – a 33′ Trojan express with big block Crusader motors. I had lost speed, after changing my generator to a lighter model. Steve suggested that I needed to change my three blade to four blade props to compensate for the change in weight bias. Sure enough, it worked. I gained over 1.5 miles per hour at cruise with the change and with no appreciable difference in fuel consumption.
