We don't make propellers, we make them better

You have a really nice boat, with the best and latest in navigation equipment and an interior as comfortable as the finest home. Your engines are state of the art and maintained by expert mechanics. Why compromise on the one thing that actually moves the boat through water-the propellers? For while its true the engines turn the shafts, the propellers move the boat.

Your boat is a well-balanced machine that will only achieve itís maximum potential when all itís components work in unison. The critical element in the drive train is the propeller. For any given vessel, engine, and gearbox combination there is one correct diameter and pitch propeller. This is the propeller that will allow the vessel to achieve itís maximum potential. All other propellers are a compromise.

The important elements of an efficient propeller are:

In all cases the best place to start is to evaluate the propellers currently on the vessel. Thoroughly understanding the performance of the vessel and the propellers producing that performance is the place to begin when recommending alternatives to improve that vessels performance. The only cost effective way to accurately evaluate a propellerís efficiency, pitch distribution, and blade shape is with Prop Scan. Prop scan can, in a matter of minutes, measure and assess a propeller, giving the propeller professional and you a very accurate understanding of the condition of your propeller. Black Dog Propellers does not charge for this measurement.

Prop Scan was first developed and introduced in Australia in 1979. Since then it has been continuously improved and dominates the market in Australia. Black Dog Propellers, established in 1995, was the first to import the Prop Scan Technology to the United States. Black Dog Propellers utilizes Prop Scan to measure and assess a propeller and UCALC8, a powerful suite of propeller software programs to analyze the results and recommend calculated pitch and/or design changes for improved performance. All work done by Black Dog Propellers is fully documented and the design information is stored in our computers. Retaining this information allows Black Dog to produce matched sets of Propellers. The work completed today can be duplicated at anytime in the future. It is, in fact possible to produce a matched set of propellers, all of which will perform identically.

The technicians at Black Dog Propellers have attended extensive training programs in Australia covering all aspects of propeller repair and are graduates of Propeller Dynamicsí Advanced Propeller Course, APC1.

Black Dog Technicians understand propeller design, including both domestic and imported designs. At Black Dog Propellers, we have the techniques and equipment to repair and rework these designs.

Our objective is to increase the performance of your vessel and to eliminate propeller induced problems.

Our goal is to provide you with adequate information about your propellers to enable you to make an informed decision. You will be an active participant in the decisions regarding your propellers, and in most cases perceptible increases in performance are achieved the first time.
