2001 Sylvan 1700 Adventurer (17.5') W 2001 125 2stroke Merc

7 posts in this topic

Dad has this boat, and has shreaded off all 3 fins from his prop. He is unable to read the pitch on the motor.

Do any of you know, off a 2001 125HP 2 stroke Merc 2+2 what the diameter and pitch would be from a 3 fin prop? Dad "thinks" its a 13" diameter with 19 pitch...but isn't sure.

Also, with the boat mentioned above, he said its getting super hard to steer the motor...he is thinking the steering cable may need to be replaced. Is this common? Is there anything you suggest trying 1st before replacing the steering cable?

Any thoughts/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I was going to say 19 pitch off hand.

You've looked on the outside (hub) of the prop and can't find a P/N or anything?

Have you taken the prop off and looked at the outside and inside of the hub as well?

If the steering seems to be getting tight it's likely the cable - you can try and grease the zerk found on the motor near the steereing cable nut, but I don't think that's going to do it.

Me looking at the prop and dad looking at the prop is totally different. The prop is off the engine yes. I know exactly where it is at by looking at it on mine. Dad says the paint is all taken off the prop there (he was blown into rocks on shore when a (poor word usage) was at the dock, put his boat into reverse without looking...and you can imagine...).

He was quoted 180.00 online for a new prop, and i found a place online that will sell them for 89.99 with free shipping. 13" diameter with 19 pitch (3 blade).

Marine Man, is there a standard length for steering cable by boat manufacturer/size or is there more involved such as boat make/model/size/engine specs etc? Would like to have a new one there without tearing out the old one first to measure....so he can use the boat while the new part is being shippped. Unfortunately, there are no Sylvan dealers anymore within 200 miles of "home"...

Check with Soderbloom's - they're pricing is usually pretty good, or competitive at a minimum.

Steering cable lengths vary by boat size typically. So no, there's no "standard length". But, your dad could take a look at the sheathing on the cable and see if there is a P/N and / or length stamped on it. A sylvan dealer probably wouldn't know either.

Any marine dealer should be able to order you one in at a minimum, and may in some instances have on on hand.

Good luck!

Check with Jay Soderbloom. I just got a great deal on a stainless from him! He is the best around and really knows his stuff...you may even consider a stainless; then again...maybe your pops is better with aluminum. grin

Thanks Marine Man. He had me order him 2 @ 89.99 a piece w free shipping from an online source, he said 15 spline, 3 blade, 19 pitch and it should be good.

A steering cable replacement is a pretty easy replacement - unless you don't have enough space to get the cable into the motor, which could require motor removal to get it in. If you've got good access to the side of the motor (no raised compartments around it, etc (like a Pro-V with transom being the same height across) it shouldn't be too bad. If not you're going to need a hoist.

    • Sweden Creates 55 "No-Go Zones" As It Loses Control Of Refugee Crisis

      Sep 28, 2016 2:45 AM

      As migrants continue to flow into Europe, certain cities across the continent have seemingly lost their ability to maintain law and order amid a surge in violent crime.  The level of violence within the so-called "no-go zones" has risen to a level such that even the police have abandoned efforts to control the streets.  According to RT [4], one particular example is Sweden's third-largest city of Malmo where more than 70 cars were set on fire by arsonists over the past several days.  Meanwhile, authorities noted that offenses range from vandalism to drug crimes, sexual assaults and gun violence. 

      Per recent media reports, there are now as many as 55 “no-go zones” spread throughout several Swedish cities where the police have little to no ability to control rising violence.  The surging violence is putting a huge burden on over-worked police officers who are reportedly choosing to quit the force in record numbers. 

      “We have a major crisis. Many colleagues are choosing to quit,” police officer Peter Larsson told the Norwegian broadcaster NRK. “A drastically worsened working environment means many colleagues are now looking for other work.”

      Recently the city of Malmo faced a string of arsons in which 16 vehicles were torched across the several neighborhoods in just one night.  As fire commander, Magnus Johansson, noted the rising violence is exhausting public resources and making it impossible to service the needs of Swedish citizens.

      “All our stations are overloaded and the whole of the Malmo force is out extinguishing the car fires,” fire commander Magnus Johansson told SVT. “It is a burden for our organization, but also for other people who really need our help,” he added.

      The burning of cars continued into the early hours of Friday morning, with a further 11 vehicles torched. A total of nine neighborhoods were affected by the arson attacks.

      Meanwhile the Hungarian government recently introduced a page [5] that alleged that as many as 900 "no-go zones" exist in major cities across Europe.  The page also warned against mandatory European quotas that only serve to "increase the terrorist risk in Europe."

      "The mandatory European quotas increase the terrorist risk in Europe and imperil our culture.

      Illegal migrants cross the borders unchecked, so we do not know who they are and what their intentions are. We do not know how many of them are disguised and may be terrorists.

      Those who come to the EU illegally do not respect our laws and do not want to share common cultural values.

      If we do not act, we will not recognize Europe in a few decades.”

      The Hungarian government has long rejected a mandatory quota for the resettlement of migrants and refugees with the Prime Minister calling for border walls to be built along the Bulgarian and Macedonian borders with Greece.

      As rising immigration has become a political hot-topic across Europe, many elected officials have dismissed the existence of "no-go zones."  Meanwhile, Ingrid Carlqvist, editor-in-chief of Swedish newspaper Dispatch International, told RT [6] that terminology used to describe rising violence is "just semantics" but the fact remains that there are certain areas where "when the police come there, they will get stoned and people will try to set fire to police cars and so on."

      No, it’s not. This is just semantics. The Swedish authorities don’t want to call them ‘no-go zones.’ They think that ‘no -go zones’ is place where no one can enter. But that is not what normal people mean. They mean that the ambulances can’t go there without police escort. When the police come there, they will get stoned and people will try to set fire to police cars and so on. They are lawless areas – and that is what people call ‘no-go zones’. No normal person would ever go inside there.

      But what we see here is that people in these areas, the people who live there, who are mostly Muslims are actually saying this. When Swedish journalists go in there, they just tell them to “f*** off,” because this is not Sweden. They are trying to impose Sharia law in these areas and they are doing a good job about it. The police could do things: they could go in there and just stop all of it when they set fire to the cars and when they throw stones, they could do something. But the longer they wait, the more impossible this job will be of course, because now we have at least 55 of these zones in Sweden.

      But we thought Angela Merkel made it very clear that "we can do this."

      Keep voting democrat, Minnesota !...:crazy:

    • HeelllllllllllNo!   What a waste.  

    • Ross Perot had the right solution for the trade issue way back in 1992, and here we are in 2016, on the same track as we were then.

       

    • Although I do think Trump made a valid point in regards to the one-sided trade agreements our politicians have entered us into.

      But I don't agree that it is entirely the fault of the Democrats though.

    • This is true until the day we change it, if you keep giving your votes to these fools then yes you deserve it. Instead of making a 100 excuses to vote the same way over and over why not try something different. Don't give me some fear based talk about the lesser of two evils and keeping so or so out, that doesn't work any more.
    • Smoking deal! 7x13 is a little big man if I had the extra cash and I could get rid of the trailer I currently have and I would take it in a heart beat! Thanks for the offer though!
    • I was thinking sensors maybe too
    • The majority of the aluminum has arrived, the build should start next week.  I am going to go with 2 runners initially, once framed up I will check for strength and rigidity.  If I need to add the 3rd runner, I will.
    • Me and Mollie will be there.
