Re: Folding prop help

I have a C&C 29-2 with a 2gm and Martec folder. I cruise at 2800 RPM all day at 6.3 knots. ( In fact, I ran it for 22 hours straight going to Mackinac in 2010 when there was no wind. The 2GM is a jewel when properly maintained) The 29-2 is a bit lighter but I would imagine you should motor at about 6 knots with the proper sized and functioning Martec. I had mine reconditioned by Martec last year for about $250 which was a worthwhile investment.
