Out of interest what prop do you have now?
I swapped over to a flex a fold. no issues... Im glad you have the fixed prop because thats exactly what I had to do... jump in and put that on. Make sure you have the prop nut and the square bass/bronze key. When I was anchoring I put the motor in reverse from forward and heard a clunk then I realized I had no reverse.. just rpms. I dropped anchor and sure enough no prop. I dove for two weeks solid a couple times a day in 80 to 120 feet of water to try and find it. No luck,,, just Mantis shrimp, Giant Kelp and some guitar fish... Very expensive loss.....
