    Default Folding Props: Size and Pitch for Voyage 430/440

    I'd like to know what size folding props others have on their V430/440 with 3GM30 motors.

    I still have the original Flexofold two blade props which I believe are 17X13, but am faced with replacing one hub (it had the older aluminum splined sleeve, and froze to the shaft). So it probably makes sense to replace the complete unit.

    A long time ago FoF suggested either 16X14 or 17X13, but thought the first better.

    I'd very much appreciate hearing what size others have and what their experience with it has been.

    G'day mate
    You could just go to a propeller specialist and get them to crunch some numbers for you ? I've done this in the past and never been charged They have a program/formula which will give you your correct size for the boat and motors.

    I do have that request posed to Flexofold, but I can't help thinking that actual experience with a specific boat/motor might be even more useful.
