On the surface, choosing the correct propeller for a particular boat seems simple. But one factor affects another, which then affects another factor, leading many boaters to believe that propeller selection depends more on black magic than logic. All the questions are answered in this complete reference, the first of its kind. This clear, easy-to-use handbook for all small boats is written not for Ph.D.s seeking the latest wrinkle in high-tech propeller design, but as a practical aid for the average mechanic, engineer, boatbuilder, fleet operator, serious yachtsman, or naval architect.

The Complete Reference for Choosing, Installing, and Understanding Boat Propellers—a first of its kind reference—fully revised and updated Propeller Handbook, Second Edition demystifies the operation, behavior and selection of propellers and provides practical and detailed advice in readable, easy-to-understand language. The book will enable readers to size and select the correct propeller for their boat or for boats they may be working on. Solutions to propeller problems, installation considerations, propeller shafting, number of blades and blade area, boat speed and powering calculations and considerations, and much more are discussed in detail. In the twenty-seven years since the publication of the first edition, Propeller Handbook, has become a cornerstone resource that marine-industry professionals rely on. All material from the previous edition is completely rewritten to reflect the author’s additional 27-years of experience in boat design and propeller selection since the first edition was introduced. Significant changes in the emphasis placed on factors such as blade area and propeller and engine matching, underlie the revised propeller-selection approach. Plus, the entire book has been updated to fully include metric and English units.

"This work is significant. It is the first to include a method of assessing structural strength in the context of the modern marine environment." --Commander M. C. Cruder, U.S. Coast Guard Acclaimed author and naval architect Dave Gerr created this unique system of easy-to-use scantling rules and rules-of-thumb for calculating the necessary dimensions, or scantlings, of hulls, decks, and other boat parts, whether built of fiberglass, wood, wood-epoxy composite, steel, or aluminum. In addition to the rules themselves, The Elements of Boat Strength offers their context: an in-depth, plain-English discussion of boatbuilding materials, methods, and practices that will guide you through all aspects of boat construction. Now you can avoid wading through dense technical engineering manuals or tackling advanced mathematics. The Elements of Boat Strength has all the formulas, tables, illustrations, and charts you need to judge how heavy each piece of your boat should be in order to last and be safe. With this book, an inexpensive scientific calculator, and a pad of paper, you'll be able to design and specify all the components necessary to build a sound, long-lasting, rugged vessel. What reviewers have said about Dave Gerr's books: Propeller Handbook "By far the best book available on the subject."--Sailing "The best layman's guide we've ever read."--Practical Sailor Dave Gerr and International Marine made a complicated topic understandable and put it into a handbook that is easy to use."--WoodenBoat "Without doubt the definitive reference for selecting, installing, and understanding boat propellers."--Royal Navy Sailing Association Journal The Nature of Boats "If you are not nautically obsessed before reading this book, you will most certainly be afterward."--Sailing Fascinating potpourri of information about today's boats, modern and traditional."--WoodenBoat
