General Discussion / Jade in St. Pete..........
« on: February 23, 2015, 09:50:31 am »
I was in St. Pete back in January, and after a visit to the Dali museum, saw a boat across the water named Jade? She was on an end tie or just inside of end. If the owner is active, or if any one is close and can take pics from dock or water, I'm interested in their cockpit enclosure. I liked the look from afar, but would like to see a little closer. Looked like aluminum framework, but will wait to see.

Engines and Drive Train / 4JH4-TE and Maxprop issue
« on: September 08, 2014, 06:03:33 pm »
I have a 6 year old Yanmar 4JH4-TE and a 24" Maxprop. I did bottom paint in the end of June and yard serviced Maxprop. Since then, I have had black transome soot mustache and seem to have lost some speed. Mechanic advised me that prop was over propped, so I called the yard and asked if they could check the settings and that maybe it didn't go on same as it came off. They agreed to. PYI, Maxprop's tech said with my engine and prop I should be pitched at 16 degrees. Mechanic swears I'm over propped and we should take to next setting which is 14 degrees. Has anyone had similar issue or same configuration that knows their settings? This is going to cost a yard haul and block now that they had it on the manufacturer's recommended setting.

Any ideas why else I might be blowing black smoke and losing a bit of power?
