Thanks for your experience. I'd like to keep discussion open for more advise on these and other models.

Autostream - first I have never heard of these guys but there product looks interesting. The folding props looks very similar to Gori's. What was your experinece dealing these guys during the sale and delivery and have you experience there service yet - is it global.

Autoprop - always been curious about this prop. Can you advise your experience with fwd/reverse prop walk and if you found the blades move and noisey under sail. As well, any trouble with blades not opening under fwd/rev. And as above your sales & service experience, how was it ?

Please forgive the interogating questions, but I'm a little more cautious with this than normal boat stuff since it is far more costly to change a second time.

Can you advise if the your new prop was sized right the first time ?

Thanks for your comments and I look forward to more.
