Re: Folding prop help

rope in the prop will stall an engine,i hava a maratec and my thoughts are if your cruising,in a 24 hr day of sailing you will gain an extra 10 miles or so at 5 knots thats 2 hours eariler arrival per day and sometimes at the end of a 40 hour its nice to get in sooner rather than later.if you sail more than motor get a folder,if you motor more than sail get a fixed 3 or 4 or 5
