Question Folding prop to Attalia

I've an Attalia (from 1984) with VP2002 (18hp) and a two bladed fixed propeller marked 84K11. I'm thinking about change to a folding propeller, but I don't know which size will be the best one.

Have anyone had the same (brand) propeller that I have? If so is, do you know what type of shaft it is? Straight or cone formed? If cone formed - how cone formed, 1:10, 1:20 or another dimension? (The boat is in the water for the moment, so I can't take the prop away at the moment. Would like to take her up first when I have the new prop.)

Have anyone, who has the same engine as I, changed to a folding propeller? What is a good size of a folding propeller, according to the engine and the boat?
