We took all the yellow tape stripes off,looks like 1968 again,all original. No photos yet we leave in the AM for the Donzi then the Formula dealer meetings. Found a blast from the past, a racer I had not seen in 35 years, he has about a dozen SSM props sitting in his basement since 1974,this is going to be fun, Dano is going to run the cleaver Sat. Will update next week.

Magic:

Ya gotta love it........

Okay ...Here's my recollections.......

Speedmaster props....earliest were round ear..with variable cup.... Your boat was designed in that era.....

But......next generation were low rake two blade cleavers....lots of stern lift...... might be the ticket...

But......next generation were low rake 3 blades...... my pick in this lottery......

But next generations...up to today offered more rake....multiple pitch.... and more blades......

There is a good chance that the latest ....will be the best.....

Does your SM have a splined shaft?......... a crescent housing.... What ratio?

Later

P.S. The Wing restoration starts in earnest next week...... The deck is coming off.

T2x,my SSM has patent pending cast in the side of the housing,doesnt that mean it's a 14/15 or 1/1? My memory is gone here.

As I recall all originalSSM's had patent pending on casting side........ 14/15's had ratio stamped on housing.... If yours doesn't it's probably a 1:1.
