Fixed vs Folding Prop

I have an S2 10.3 with a Martec II folding prop. Unfortunalty we lost one of the blades likely to being a bit overagressive on the throttle.
Now we're faced with replacing the prop and Im a bit torn over whether to invest teh extra $ in a folding prop, Martiec no longer has parts for the Mark II so we'd have to replace the entire prop.
We're not racers, so I need to ask what does the folding prop actually buy me that a well fitted fixed prop won't.
Also, OK I'm a bit frugal, is this going to be a huge pain to replace without pulling the boat out of the water?
Thanks...
