Tech/Engineering / propeller ship
German term or phrase: Spiegeltauschung
Beim Aufstoppen besteht nicht die Tendenz des Luftansaugens, selbst bei sehr geringer Spiegeltauschung, weil der Zustrom diagonal von unten erfolgt. Dieses trägt zur Minimierung des Störeinflüsse beim Manövrieren bei.
This is a special type of ship's propeller.

transom immersion / transom depth
Explanation:
Your client is right.

The term is 'transom' (without final e) and describes the stern (not stem) of boats & ships.
On small boats, the outboard engine is usually clamped to the top edge of the transom.
The height of the top edge above the water line determines the immersion depth of the propeller at the bottom end of the outboard. Insufficien depth can lead to cavitation (Luftansaugung).

Thanks for that. The client seems to want "transome" with an e, which is a variant spelling.
