A special version of HydroComp's intensive Propeller Workshops will be brought to Tampa before the start of IBEX 2014.
 

The Mini-Workshop is a special version of HydroComp’s intensive Propeller Workshops for those involved in design, construction and operation of workboats and pleasure crafts. These two half-day educational seminars will focus on topics of Successful Pre-construction Propeller Selection (including principles of marine propulsion and initial propeller sizing) and Documenting and Troubleshooting Post-delivery Performance (including boat test analysis and troubleshooting propeller problems).


This Mini-Workshop is suited for:

  • Naval architects and designers,
  • Boat builders and repairers,
  • Owners and operators,
  • Management of workboats (or other similar craft),
  • Propeller builders and distributors, and
  • Engine and transmission companies

The Workshop will take place at the Aloft Hotel Tampa Downtown, Tampa, Florida on September 29, 2014.
