Propeller Ventilation

How to Prevent Propeller Ventilation with High-Quality ProductsHow to Prevent Propeller Ventilation

Not to be confused with cavitation, propeller ventilation is when a boat propeller’s blades starts sucking in air, causing the boat to slow down and the engine to speed up. Boat propellers need to be submerged in water in order to work properly, and when they run in the air, ventilation can occur. Examining your propeller consistently for dented blades, nicks, and rolled tips is essential to preventing ventilation.
