Propulsion - 2012

Ready for the 2012 season!

Changes to the prop adjustments.

It has long been felt that the current allowance for fixed blade props is not adequate to cover the lost performance due to drag. In order to improve fairness for cruising boats a range of boats sizes has been analyzed to determine the drag due to fixed 2 blade and 3 blade props.

The resulting changes to the adjustment table are not large enough to cause skippers to move from folding to fixed but at least will create a more level field for the cruiser racer fleet.
