    That's great Andy, thank you so much.
    Since 32 millimeters seems a bit atypical to me, I will write between 30 and 35 mm, reporting both ratios.

    I didn't change the propeller. I managed to squeeze my verniers in there and it's about 32mm. Hope it helps.

    Hi Andy, I'm interested in knowing the diameter of the propeller you put in. Even if you made a different choice than what was indicated by the manufacturer. If you made a customization or followed the original project, it's fine anyway.

    Well, since it's not my design you can use it to your heart's desire.

    Hi Andy, I might know the diameter of the Valdivia propeller in your Harbour, that's the only data I'm missing.

    If you don't mind I would like to use your model data as an example in the topic: "Proportions between ship size and propeller diameter".

    I would like to insert a very important data as I do not yet have any data on the Schooners and this is a successful model.

    Yes, Roy, it is Robbe. I don't think there is another one apart form Vanadis by Billing boats.

    Thank you for the comment. Always appreciated.

    Hello Andy did not realise you had this sailing boat. Lovely job you have done as well. Is this the Robbe kit?

    regards
    Roy

    La valdivia รจ un bel modello, hai fatto bene, ne valeva la pena.
    I progettisti della Robbe, sono stati furbi ad avere una buona spinta raddrizzante laterale, nonostante il fattore di scala.

    The Valdivia is a nice model, you did well, it was worth it.
    The Robbe designers were smart to have a good lateral righting thrust, despite the scale factor.
