I use a composite prop on my boat, that is made of materials similiar to what the Kiwi prop is made of and the blades are designed to shear in an impact. This can save the transmission and lower drive unit from being damaged. The blades are easily replaced. I believe that the Kiwi prop is designed with the same idea in mind.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
