Catalina 27 prop

Hello. i recently purchased a Catalina 27, and was thinking of installing a feathering or folding prop. i know nothing about the propulsion besides the fact that it is a universal model 18 with a prop pitch of 10. any suggestions, has anyone done this before?

While there will be lots of good input on props from this group, you may get additional responses from more folks with your boat either here:

Re: Catalina 27 prop

Keep in mind there are Catalina 27's that regularly sell for less than a new feathering/folding prop. Check prices and you'll be shocked.
