Inboard fixed vs. folding prop & ratings

Our Newport 41 rates 108 both with the fixed two blade and now the new feathering prop. The SoCA PHRF attitude is "you''re supposed to have optimised the boat for racing".

Loosly translated that means here''s your 108... and if you''re still dragging that fixed prop, then it''s your loss.
