Volga from Croatia

Post by Riko » Tue Apr 27, 2021 9:41 pm

Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and I present to you my volga for the transport of tourists in Croatia. The engine is mercedes om606 and zf v drive. Can you help me in choosing a propeller for this boat, I have 3 original volga propellers that should give balancing I'm not sure if the different dimensions should be checked. Do you know anyone for information on which large propellers are installed and on which engines? Or does anyone know which propeller would be ideal for this engine?

Hello Riko!

Welkom!

There were 3 main props on the Volga:
Prop nr 1:
- Diameter 350 mm
- Stap 595 mm
- Stepping-ratio 1,7
- Links

Prop nr 2:
- Diameter 335 mm
- Stap 560 mm
- Stepping-ratio 1,67

Prop nr 3
- Diameter 335 mm
- Stap 538 mm
- Stepping-ratio 1,61
If you have a stock 606 you have 180HP.
More than enhough for the V8 prop, that is prop Nr 1
That is "slower" on foil but beter for long range trips.
Small ones are faster on foils but little slower. beter for water skiing ;-)
