Displacement (light) 8600 kg / 18960 lbs approx.
Engine Yanmar 4JH4E (40.5 KW @3000 RPM)
Saildrive Yanmar SD40
ratio 2,32:1
Current prop 17 3 bladed fixed
Also some of the screw bottons in the cabin are mississing can somebody direct me to where I might be able to purchase some.

I don't think Flexofold makes a feathering propeller.

I still don't understand. Do you want a feathering or folding? Regardless, there isn't any sense in asking here when you can go straight to the source. Contact flexofold. They are very responsive to questions now.

Re: 3 bladed folding flex o fold for Wauquiez

I would really like to hear back from somebody who owns a Wauquiez Centurion 40S with the same Yanmar motor and sail drive as we have that changed there solid prop to the 3 bladed flexoflold and the part number. As I said this was an option from the factory and any that I have seen for sale in USA or Europe took the option. The proplem is that props are a science and if we could find out what the option prop was it would be great. Wauquiez does not answer we have tried to email them without any response and flexofold USA no longer has any technical support.
