Propspeed Put to the Test
- Fuel Savings
“In all three tests, we were getting the same results. In my opinion, we have gained 1 knot from the props being painted in Propspeed”
Robert Verone, based in New York, decided to put Propspeed to the test on his Blackfin 29 Flybridge.
After applying Propspeed to the propellers and fixed interceptors, Robert conducted three trials under different tide and wind variations, measuring the speed, RPM, and fuel burn in comparison to the previous year when the running gear was left bare.
“In all three tests we were getting the same results. In my opinion, we have gained 1 knot from the props being painted in Propspeed. We gained another knot from lowering our fixed interceptors ¼” lower. No matter what we are making more speed and consuming less gas, especially at a lower RPM.”
