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.
