Hi,

  a chap told me the other day that the 40' ST's were fitted with 15" props to avoid hull blistering due to cavitation.  Because of this, the gearboxes fitted had to be 1:1 to get the performance out of the props.  I was wondering, then, what engines, gearboxes and props ST1502 was fitted with?  I know she has ford diesels, but what make/capacity?

  Many thanks,

Paul
