Prop Test´s Caravelle 217 Cuddy

Postby misterkrabs » Thu Sep 06, 2012 5:35 am


I tested the following propellers . My Boat is a Caravelle 217 Cuddy Cabin with Volvo Penta 5.0 GXI-J and SX-A Drive with 1:60 Translation Gear .
Boat an Machine is from the Year 2010 and have abaout 60 hours .

Optimal is at the moment my original Volvo Penta Alupropeller in 14 1/4 x 21" . I came of 90km/H and 5000 U/min .

Ballistic 14 3/8 x 21" Stainless was disapointing . I came of 50 - 60 km/H and no more at 4000 U/min at full trimm .

19" Alu and 17" Alu from accessories market was bad . High speed and low power , feeling like air drag .

In the future I do with attempts with Props : High Five original Mercruiser/Quicksilver in 21" . Tempest Plus in 21" original Mercruiser .

I Have FloTorq Kits which can be mounted Merc Props on Volvo Drive .

I'm still curious if performance is to be expected .

Sorry for my bad Schoolenglish and have a nice Time , Greetings Peter from Germany .
nice greetings from Germany and Apology for my miserable English !
