Notch 1

Working fine

I thought I would drop you a quick email to let you know that I pulled my sailboat, Exeter, out of the water last Friday and had a chance to inspect the propeller after a summer’s worth of sailing in Chicago. Attached are several photos. When the boat first was on the hard, the bottom was covered in a thin slime with no major growth. This is usual for boats in Lake Michigan. After a pressure wash, the propeller looked as shown in photo 1. After a quick, mild acid wash, the propeller looked as shown in photo 2. Looks like brand new! The only interesting thing to report was that my magnesium anode on the propeller shaft was quite severely consumed. I still may be having a stray current issue on the dock. It did its job and there didn’t seem to be any corrosion issues with the propeller.
So, overall, I am very pleased with my Orion propeller. I changed the pitch to be right on 20 degrees and will see how this works out next year. The only thing I would recommend to EWOL would be to also offer the spinner anodes on the propeller to be made out of magnesium. This would double protect the propeller for sailing in fresh water. (note: we have now magnesium anodes available in our shop online)

It is working fine and the performance seems better than the three bladed M… that I replaced. It is smoother when motoring and seems to be a little bit faster when just motoring at idle speed. I still don’t have the pitch set perfectly. At launch, I went with a 18 degree blade setting which is a little bit low. The engine (Yanmar 2GM20F), easily can rev up to 3600 and the boat speed is a little bit over 6 knots. Shortly, I will be setting it to 19 degrees and see how this works.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS !

Happy Holidays from EWOL !


Marked improvement

Thank you for those valuable recommendations which I will follow carefully. We sailed for about two month with your propeller which works perfectly with a clear improvement of speed at sail and easy maneuvers in harbours. It was in perfect conditions when we took the boat out water.

Best regards

More than happy

I am more than happy with you product, the propellers have been an excellent combination with the boat and the new Yanmar 4JH80 engines. The new engines are a common rail fuel system which is computer controlled therefore it is very easy to see on the instruments even slight differences. While underway with both engines just idling over if I pull up a sail I can see the fuel consumption drop.

Where you propellers come into their own however is in tight situations like docking while travelling in tight situations , in a new marina where the tide or wind is causing problems. The thrust and instant response is amassing making docking in new places under difficult conditions a piece of cake. On one other occasion I was crossing a coastal bar when I encountered a 3 meter swell in which the boat just handled with ease at lower RPMs. I believe again the thrust engine combination was reason .

There some interesting figures come out of the boats performance by comparison of the “A…prop” and the EWOL prop At 2,500 RPMs. The EWOL props push the boat along at 9.5 knots using 3.5 litres of fuel per side.

With the A…prop although they are 17 inch in diameter the boat for the same RPM 2500 is only doing 8 knots and using 4.7 litres per hour per side.

I find the difference in handling the cat very noticeable especially when trying to position the boat in a busy marina. With the EWOL I have fingertip control at very low RPM but the A…. Prop I have to use lots of RPM to get a response.

EWOL Andromeda

EWOL Andromeda has born!

Small but powerful, it has a slim body and it’s suitable for boats from 6 to 10 meters and engines from 7 to 30 hp. Lighter but always very performing under engine both in forward and in reverse and increases the sailing speed in the utmost silence. Like her larger sisters ORION and PEGASUS but with the same features and cutting-edge technology in materials and solutions and with the latest generation “SWORD blades” the most efficient and silent.
