Propeller Selection

Postby jimh » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:17 am

Below is a link to a recorded presentation made by Bombardier Recreational Products that explains the basics of propeller operation. I highly recommend watching this presentation. The presentation contains numerous animated illustrations that show the interaction of a propeller with the water stream that demonstrate subtle elements of the operation of a propeller. Although the initial minutes of the presentation go over basics, the later portions provide rather interesting explanations of subtleties of propeller operation.
