[C38] Propeller

Not necessarily great for racing, but I have a 14 inch fixed blade that my original diesel engine will plug along all day at 6.5 knots.

It doesn't seem to cause a big loss in sailing performance compared with other local boats with folding props as long as I follow the gear box manufacturer's instructions and lock the gear box in reverse.

If I put it in neutral it costs me half a knot.

Hi all, yup it’s me again.   LOL   Seems like my propeller disappeared over the last two weeks.  Fell off or stolen?  Who knows?  I’m thinking of a three-blade folding prop for racing of course.  Any great suggestions?
