If you have a fouled prop AND a sahft cutters, then this is potential dangerous; you might cut your hand when trying to clear your prop.

Also it induces drag when sailing.

Been there, done that. Needed stitches MILES from the nearest place that could do it. They DO NOT always work, trust me I have the scar to prove it..
