Hey guys,
Hope everyone is having a great season!!
I have a chance to revisit the two vs. three blade prop issue again, and  
this time I am going for the two blade.
Anyone have a left hand two blade prop they can part with, or suggest a  
What is the latest thinking on alternatives to bronze props?
What caulk do you use to seal in the stern tube? I used 3M 4200 to seal  mine 
in last spring, and it didn't leak, but when I had to pull it now, jeez;  
Hours to dig it out.
What size prop are A30 owners with diesels using? I have a 16.5 hp, two  
cylinder Volvo diesel. Does anyone sail with a 14 inch diameter two blade? Can  
you still get it off the shaft past the rudder, without having to remove the  
cutlass bearing housing/ stern tube assembly? 
What is the latest thinking on alternative materials to  bronze?
