Bit of an Animal .. how about that .. I looked at her back in 2003 at Anglia yacht brokers. She had just been brought up from Plymouth and sported those 2 stonking great beasts fitted by Coastal Rides. I remember how deep she was at the stern.

really sorry to hear that. You must be shattered.
Coastal Rides could prob help you with pair used legs if repairs/ new parts appear to take costs out of control.

Princess 32 same engines as yours using 15x17's previously underpropped with 15x15 he makes around 14 ish knots not fitted with trim tabs I feel that 16's are right for you ... but whether 17 or 19 or 21 best suits your engines I am not sure ... you might like to have a scout around http://www.rbbi....

you'll be amazed how big the 16x21's look compared with what you have .. they are great chunks. The guy I know with the Princess 32 (no reply yet) and same 6cyl engines as yours has the sweetest smoothest running I have seen so I would expect yours to cope well with the coarseness of the big props. ...

just noticed your earlier posting in May yours sounds like the Volvos that were fitted in some Princess 32's. Different hull I know but you may be able to get a line on propeller matching from a P32 owner. I imagine the P32 used 270 legs but I think the drive ratio same as 280. I believe I know such...

My new engines are heavier than original petrols so I have 100kgs of ballast up front to improve attitude and I try keep water tank full. I guess if you try the 16x19 an...

as you say twin diesel aft cockpits are rare, thats why I bought petrol and converted. Mirage owner for just 3 years I am no expert in all this. I did a lot of research and came to the conclusion, as with so much of the marine business, there are no absolutes. I talked to fairline about engines, pro...

Mirage props

Talk to Fairline , they are very helpful.
