Selecting the engine, gearing and propeller for your boat (04-FEB-2012)
We've extended the functionality of our propeller calculator spreadsheet to provide a side-by-side comparison of two engines
(375HP 8.2L and a 300HP 5.7L) with 1.23:1 VS 1:1 gearing for each engine. Recommended WOT range is 4200-4600 RPM for the 8.2
and 4600-5000 RPM for the 5.7 . We've also included a Theoretical Speed Table to demonstrate how the gearing affects top speed.
Propeller Diameter Notes (05-APR-2012)
This article discusses how to check for optimum propeller diameter.
Propeller Page (04-FEB-2012)
A few notes on our propeller tuning progress, frequently asked questions, links to propeller terminology, calculators and references.
Inboard Installation Notes (05-FEB-2012)
This section discusses propeller selection (diameter, tip clearance), rudder selection (shaft diameter, offset, rudder depth),
general inboard installation clearances and engine selection (torque vs. horsepower).
Stretching the hull (04-FEB-2012)
Ever want to stretch a boat design past its design length ? We've been considering stretching the Hot Rod from 16'-6"
to 21'. Glen-L does not recommend extending or shortening the Hot Rod's hull nor increasing the beam. If we choose
to stretch the hull, we'd be totally on our own on this one. Follow along as we go through the process.
