Ship's Propeller

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 12 December 2017 in Documentary & Street.

The USS South Dakota had two of these four bladed propellers and two with five blades. The engines provided 130,000 horsepower to turn them. In the background, you can see one of nine 16 inch guns carried in three turrets.
