We were told by boatyard folks the same thing regarding folding props... reverse is non-existent!
We have Autostream feathering props... they rock. I have to say, for having a sailboat, we received lots of "props" for our props when our boat was out of the water
. We service
them here in the US through Martec Sailboat Propellers
Also, someone on page 1 of this thread complained about feathering props and getting lobster pot lines caught all of the time. We use Spurs Marine - Ship Cutters
on our feathering props. Got lots of "props" for those too.
Watch the Cast and Crew as we refit
a Prout Snowgoose 37, move aboard, and get ready to go cruising.
The critics are saying, "We laughed; we cried; we nearly pissed our pants!"
