Propeller Handbook The Complete Reference for Choosing, Installing and Understanding Boat Propellers

By David Gerr

This is a reference book for all power, sail, working and pleasure boats to serve as a practical aid for the average mechanic, engineer, boatbuilder, yachtsman or naval achitect. The author discusses propeller selection, installation and speed and offers charts and graphs that will enable the user to analyse the speed and powering characteristics of a boat with relation to its propeller requirements. David Geer is a naval architect specialising in the design of yachts and commercial craft to 180 feet. He has worked on a wide range of vessels and is now the owner of his own design firm.

On the surface, choosing the correct propeller for a particular boat seems simple. But one factor affects another, which then affects another factor, leading many boaters to believe that propeller selection depends more on black magic than logic.

All the questions are answered in this complete reference, the first of its kind. This clear, easy-to-use handbook for all small boats is written not for Ph.D.s seeking the latest wrinkle in high-tech propeller design, but as a practical aid for the average mechanic, engineer, boatbuilder, fleet operator, serious yachtsman, or naval architect.
