BoatingLocal recently paid a visit to Dover, New Hampshire, home of AccuTech Marine Propeller, one of the largest propeller repair and servicing companies on the East Coast.
Founder and owner Larry Kindberg, a former charter skipper, started the business 10 years ago after learning firsthand the difference a misaligned or damaged propeller can make in terms of boat performance and fuel economy. In fact, he’s made a personal mission of educating boaters about this crucial yet often misunderstood part of the marine-propulsion system.
In the accompanying video, Larry and his son Jason walk us through some of the steps involved in diagnosing, tuning and repairing marine propellers, including a look at the high-tech PropScan computer system.
