Re: Prop size for a Conway

Hi Paul

boat in water now, just done a couple of mile run so far and all seemed fine

Actually i got 4.5 knot just on 1000 revs, on the rver Deben, no wind
mind you the hull is dead clean and hardly any weight in the boat.

Re: Merc Recon Question

Thanks for reply robmcg

I do agree that a recon merc engine from westfield is the way to go..
They are well built engines.. but alas not cheap
Would have been good to hear from people that have had recons from them ....
and any comment they could offer....

cheers
