still playing with propellers, we had a set of 27x34 4-blades that ran 36kts on the big end but only reached 80% load and over revved well past 2300 and to the limiter.

we tried a set of 26x36 recently and had similar results with slower top end.

searching for a set of 5 blade wheels to see what it can do.

Look forward to seeing you guys at the dock or out fishing if you are going to keep her in St Aug. Gorgeous!

I believe the boat to still be in existence now although with many different owners now. Fished that boat all over the world, what a great rig and a true work of art. Wish I had a better picture...

wow, 61 in 1978 was considered a mega yacht! Sweet lines and a great childhood, Skip. In 1978 i was
fishing out of my homemade 16 dory with a British Seagull...

Not to derail the thread but the 61 is for sale and has had lots of work done to her in the last few years. There is a small excerpt on Jarrett Bay's website and the boat is also listed on YW.

Never mind - found it under Sportsman.

What is the weight of the boat now? I just ran my Davis down that is very close to your size, 1' shorter and we weighed in about 34000- 35000 pounds with the same power, my props are only giving me 57% power at 2350 rpm and I got 30 knots. 3 blade nasty 27x34 and very thin. Prop guy at ZZprop and Veem are both pointing to a 5 blade 27x39 or 40 wheel, with the 4 blade showing just as good prop efficiency. I asked why go with 5 blade then and I was told for better seakeeping and better cruise, not top end.
Here lies the dilemma, what is your mileage telling you, because with those way too small props im still cruising 25 plus knots at 1 gallon to the mile at something like 45-50% power! Point of it being take a look at the fuel burn and power ratio relationship because I am discovering these things have a really sweet spot along with the fact that they tell you to never be in that 1400 - 1800 rpm range which means doing 30 knots at 2100 is great but if you cant cruise at 20 on a snotty day because your in the no RPM zone then we are kinda screwed. Arguably one of the best hull designs out there on that Omie but she is still short to run fast in 6 foot seas like 57 or 61'ers.
I am so glad I am a few months behind you becuse these hulls are so similar and I like following you paving the way. The boat is absolutely gorgeous and a one of a kind diamond. Great Great Job guys!

Veem was suggesting 4 blade 27 with 37.5 pitch. 40kts on the big end would be utopia, but if we can find 36kts loaded for bear WOT, and 30kts cruise under 80% load, i will be very pleased. The M11s have been very impressive so far, they have really woke this rig up.

Did a little tackle organizing today in one of the closets.

Not to derail but I just put on a set of VEEMS yesterday(much smaller boat) but preliminary results BLEW ME AWAY. Only gained about 1.75 kts on top end but the
mid-range increased 10% and the load factor dropped 10 points. Have a lot more testing to do on Saturday but so far well worth the price IMHO.

i loved those seagulls as a kid. At 9 years old, 3 miles an hour feels like your flying! One of my dads friends in a drunken stupor once dropped one in the bay of margarita island as he was hoisting it down to the zodiac.was completely submerged for a couple of seconds, but started right up

I had one too up at our camp on Lake Champlain. I could get my 14' tin boat to plane. And I'd always forget about the spark plug and get bit when I'd tilt the engine by hand to go shallow. I mean, what could go wrong with an 8 or 9 year old and an open flywheel?

Beautiful boat!
Dr Allen's Sea Hag when the Ledford's owned her, possibly the finest boat I've ever fished on
