THAT PROP MUST BE IN EXCESS OF 16 feet .                        PUFFIN

According to the stats it is 5.6m in diameter which works out at 18.37ft.....Huge by any standard.   :o  :-[

I would guess the holes are for the need to lift the blade off the hub for replacement or repairs...............Paul

Howdy folks..

Shes sat in Norway at the moment getting some new gear on her and then setting sail for Italy in the comming weeks. Dads due back early march and will ask him to get some pictures. Heres some pictures I got when she was in teesport. Sorry there isnt many more at the moment, didnt really get chance to take any more.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the delay but heres some pics of the winch equipment on the Samson courtesy of daddy.

Hope they may be of some use. The main winch isnt safely accessable and would be too big to get on camera, hence the poor pic of it.
