Re: 3 blades folding props on a Volvo D1-30

Internet info seems to indicate that FP is using Volvo Penta three blade folding props as optional props for their cats. For more info straight from the horses mouth, why not ask FP?

Volvo Penta offers 2, 3 and 4 blade folding props for saildrive and straight shaft applications.

I thought the OP was asking about line strippers that might be fitted with the folding props from VP..........VP does not have an OEM line stripper available for the their folding prop hubs. I was just pointing that out.

I believe “SHAFT SHARK” makes a line cutter for Volvo Penta folding props.

To determine the correct Shaft Shark for your installation simply supply the following

Diameter of the fwd end of your propeller hub and the Saildrive make and model and the model of the Saildrive propeller

Saildrive Models ~ Available as split units only
SS 585T ... for 2-blade propellers
SS 695 ... SS696 ... for 3-blade propellers
