Re: Kiwi Prop

I have one...really helped me in reverse vs the fixed 3-blade OEM prop.

One of the best upgrades I've ever made on the boat!

Lost about 0.5 knot - 1 knot under power, however gained about 20-30 sailing days a year. Before, I needed 9-12 knots windspeed to get going...now 7-8 knots and I get somewhere!
