Folding vs. Feathering Prop?

I have a 1984 Hunter 34. 24 HP yanmar 3-cyl. Right now making 5 1/2 kts. cruising speed, looking to pick up a little more thrust to power through a head wind.
Does anybody have any experiance with either a folding or feathering prop, looking for advice. Folding vs. feathering, two vs. three bladed. Is it worth the money?

Thanks
