Cavalier 32 - Angle of propeller shaft


Recommended Posts

Hi. My boat is a 47 year old Cav 32. Like most Cav 32s of the time, the engine was positioned forward facing, and transmission went through a remote Viking vee-drive, changed direction and went under the engine then through the hull. I am installing a vee-drive to replace the original Viking vee-drive and I need to rebuild the footings. Problem is that I cannot tell for certain what the angle is of the propeller shaft where it goes through the hull. I can't actually get a clinometer onto the propellor shaft becuse of all the other things in the way, but I think it is about 8 degrees, where as the old vee-drive footings show about 11 degress - a misalignment of three degrees! If anyone knows what the propeller shaft angle actually is that would be awesome. Thanks in advance, Martin

There is one on the hard at Devonport, though measuring another may be a red herring unless she has the exact same propulsion set up, I know of at least five variants fitted from new.
