Max prop on a saildrive

Oddly enough saildrive systems generally have more prop walk than conventional systems. I would not expect better performance under power or sail with a max prop over a well designed folding prop except in that situation where you need stop the boat quickly by putting the boat in reverse. That said a max prop would have slightly worse performance when sailing.
