[C38] Fixed Prop Spec's

Hi Larry,

I'm months late in replying, but I have a Martec 2 blade folding I'll give you or anybody-just pay the shipping.  It has been rebuilt twice.  As I remember one more rebuilt is possible.  I replaced the old Martec with a Slipstream geared 2 blade folding prop in 2008.  It is just as efficient or more than my fixed 3 blade prop with much less prop walk in astern and I don't feel like I'm dragging a bucket behind while sailing.  The only down side of a 2 bladed prop is I have to stay away from 2500 eng. rpm- cruise at 2300 rpm or 2700 rpm.  My Universal engine drive system has a resident frequency around 2500 rpm- noticeable vibration.  A 3 bladed prop would fix the vibration problem.

Cheers, Steve O (Santa Susanna)

Hi all, long time posting here.  My Martec prop has died and since I think we are going to go to a cruising class for racing I need to find a prop.  Any suggestions?  Also I need the spec’s for a fixed prop for our Catalina 38’s, can anyone send me this info?  If you have a used one or a used folding prop for sale let me know too.  Thanks in advance.
