Main description

The Complete Reference for Choosing, Installing, and Understanding Boat Propellers--a first of its kind reference--fully revised and updated

Propeller Handbook, Second Edition demystifies the operation, behavior and selection of propellers and provides practical and detailed advice in readable, easy-to-understand language. The book will enable readers to size and select the correct propeller for their boat or for boats they may be working on. Solutions to propeller problems, installation considerations, propeller shafting, number of blades and blade area, boat speed and powering calculations and considerations, and much more are discussed in detail. In the twenty-seven years since the publication of the first edition, Propeller Handbook, has become a cornerstone resource that marine-industry professionals rely on.

All material from the previous edition is completely rewritten to reflect the author's additional 27-years of experience in boat design and propeller selection since the first edition was introduced. Significant changes in the emphasis placed on factors such as blade area and propeller and engine matching, underlie the revised propeller-selection approach. Plus, the entire book has been updated to fully include metric and English units.
