Re: Folding prop help

I had Martec folders on the last two boats I've owned and have been happy with their performance. Even cruisers enjoy the extra speed under sail. I would check with Martec to see if you have the right pitch. It seems low for a Yanmar diesel with reduction gearbox. May have been for a direct drive A4.
