Turning Point Prop Wizard

New tool helps boaters pick the best prop for their boat.

Turning Point Propellers has a propeller size calculator that lets a dealer provide expert customer advice to help boaters pick the best prop for their boat.

Prop Wizard 4.0 automatically scales for optimal use on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC. In addition to its availability at www.tpprops.com, the program can be added to a dealer's website with a simple copy and paste of code.

Easy drop-down menus and autocomplete functions initiate a search of Prop Wizard’s database of more than 350,000 boat models spanning 35 years, as well as 7,000 engines. The program delivers pinpoint accuracy in calculating the ideal Turning Point Hustler aluminum or Express stainless-steel prop for a boat.

The new Prop Wizard 4.0 can make a recommendation without an exact model by using a boat's hull type, length, beam and dry net weight. This can be helpful to boatbuilders looking to equip a new design. Prop Wizard quickly takes into account the average boat load and amount of fuel, as well as additional gear and altitude of operation. It can change pitch recommendation whether the boat is on Lake Tahoe, Biscayne Bay, or any waters in between.

Alternate search functions give dealers maximum flexibility, such as an OEM-to-part-number cross-reference that quickly finds all engines a prop fits, with its corresponding hub system. Prop Wizard can also generate a list of all props for a specific engine, or simply display all of Turning Point's models — something no other selection tool delivers.

Additionally, dealers can use Prop Wizard’s videos as an educational tool for customers. They help boat owners understand the differences between aluminum and stainless steel or three- and four-blade props, as well as learn about diameter, pitch and WOT-RPM range.
