The original intention of the author of this publication was to provide all interested readers, including boat designers and boat builders in the first turn, with all necessary knowledge which they will use when selecting appropriate propellers for the boats. The content of the volume will be equally applicable to various types of boats from trawlers to high-speed powerboats. It shall be noted that if someone is interested in some particular application or vessel type, it is not required to go through the whole book.

We would rather recommend them to have a glance at the main aspects and then concentrate on the particular section with the type-specific information they need. The first two chapters of the book are covering the matters related to the boat power and speed, while the third chapter is describing the essential parts of the boat propeller together with the associated dimensions.

The following two chapters define and discuss the technical differences in propeller types and shapes of the propeller blades, plus the so-called “slip method” of selecting the propeller. The remaining chapters are dealing with the mathematical methods of selection, various installation methods, and special consideration that would be necessary for tug boats, outboard powered vessels and others.
