    Variprop Pitch Adjustment on a Yanmar 4jh4hte

    I have a Variprop 4 blade thats slightly over pitched (only gets to 2900 of a max 3200) I've run it this way for a couple of years but I'm beginning to think that I'm not doing myself any favors here. So I want to adjust accordingly. Now the Yanmar specs say the rotation is counter...

    H49 engine stalls

    I’m frustrated with my Yanmar 4jh4hte. The engine runs great, however after running for 30 minutes or more and I lower the RPM to drop into neutral and then into gear, the engine will stall. I’ll put it into neutral to restart it then into gear and it will stall again. Picture the routine of...

    Design considerations of the 49 wing keel

    Glenn- Thanks for taking the time. I'd like to know your thoughts on the design of the wing keel for the 49. Do the wings have any other benefits other than ballast (such as lift)? And finally when comparing the wing keel to the fin keel, how much more drag does the wing keel generate...

    Positioning of Tell tails on RF Main

    I've been sailing my Hunter 49 with Roller Furled Main now for two seasons and I am finding it pretty difficult to dial in the mainsail trim. Currently I have vertical battens and no tell tails on the sail. I want to put on some tell tails but I'm not sure of the positioning The question I...
