Anyone know what size prop I'd need - I have the old Universal 35 with 2:1 transmission...

Bill,

I believe what's being discussed -- by the PSC owners anyway -- is feathering props, rather than folding props.

Most feathering props should work in the PSC propeller aperture, as they take up about the same space as a fixed prop. But folding props wouldn't work as there's insufficient clearance.

For a while now I've wanted to upgrade our boat with a feathering propeller. The grass is always greener?
