another option is to put a brake on the shaft.... there are aftermarket solutions available.

Another thing that can be done is to put a pipe wrench on the shaft...but this is a dangerous if left on if you ever need to start the engine up in a hurry ....

Hi Jim

Thanks for the good advise. I did see that on the Kiwiprop web site and I tried it but it made no difference. I emailed Kiwiprop a couple days ago and the next idea is to grease my prop in case it's sticking. I'm going to try that ... but of course that means slipping the boat. My prop has never feathered more than a handful of time in nearly 2 years so ther is something wrong.
