Award-winning marine engineering software company HydroComp has announced a one-day propeller mini workshop to be held in Tampa, Florida on Monday 29th September. The workshop is a special version of HydroComp’s intensive propeller workshops for those involved in design, construction, and operation of workboats and pleasure crafts.
The two half-day educational seminars will focus on the 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.
The Mini-Workshop was developed for anyone involved in the design, construction, operation, or management of workboats and pleasure craft, as well as for suppliers of propulsion equipment and is ideal for:
- Naval architects and designers,
- Boat builders
- Owners and operators
- Workboat management (or other similar craft)
- Propeller builders and distributors

The workshop will take place at the Aloft Hotel Tampa Downtown, Tampa, Florida on Monday 29th September 2014.
The workshop is conducted by Donald MacPherson, technical director at HydroComp’s. He is a frequent speaker at conferences, technical societies and trade groups; Mr MacPherson is a graduate of Webb Institute and author of many noted journal articles and technical papers on ship propulsion and propeller performance. He is also the instructor of naval architecture in the ocean engineering department of the University of New Hampshire.
