Use extreme caution while operating the engine
in confined areas such as enclosed slips or
congested piers. Operation under such conditions
could easily lead to exhaust gasses (carbon
monoxide) entering even though you may have all
thehatches, windows, doorsandportholesclosed.
Pitch is a measure of helix angle, or angle of attack, of
the rotating blade. Pitch is easily understood if one imag-
ines the propeller rotating through a semisolid such as
butter or jello. The distance the propeller will travel in
one revolution is called “Pitch.” Increasing or decreas-
ing pitch will also have a direct bearing on engine RPM’s
because of the greater bite taken by the blade with each
rotation. See Figure E1.
Persons sleeping can be easily overcome by car-
bon monoxide because they are unaware of its
presence. Sleeping while the engine is running is
not recommended. If persons are sleeping aboard
while underway, those awake should monitor for
carbon monoxide accumulation in the cabin; es-
pecially the sleeping areas.
NEVER operate the propulsion engine while
everyone on-board is sleeping. Fatal carbon
monoxide poisoning can occur.

Knowledge of the propeller is most easily gained
through better understanding of the terminology used
to refer to the aspects of propeller size and perfor-
Never run with a damaged propeller. You can
damage the engine or drive unit. Keep a
spare propeller on board.
Figure E1: Propeller Pitch & Diameter
Diameter is twice the distance from the center of the
prop shaft to the extreme tip of a propeller blade. In-
creasing or decreasing propeller size will have a direct
bearing on the RPM’s an engine will develop. This is
due to the greater amount of propeller blade surface in
contact with the water. See Figure E1.
C. Prop Slip
When traveling through water a propeller is unable to
get a complete bite because of the fluidity of water. “Prop
Slip” is usually expressed as a percent of the computed
theoretical speed. Fifteen to twenty-five percent prop
slip is common for a sport-type boat operating at cruis-
