I got some useful sites from people a while back, but have discovered my Prop is definately pink and will need replacing.

I lack knowledge in this space and have trawled the archives which have proved fruitful. So some questions:

1. How do I determine the maximum RPM for the prop?
2. How do I determin the GB ratio. 2:1 or 3:1?
3. Given the 360 rudder, has anyone sucessfully fitted a folding prop without eating the rudder?

I know my shaft is 7/8" (22mm) and I have a YSE8. I believe 3 blades would be inefficient as engine is underpowered and under sail there would be too much drag.

Anything else I should find out?
