Folding Props for 387's

Been watching the discussions about folding and feathering props to suit 380 /387's with great interest. I am very keen to change from the 3 blade fixed prop on Tusitala because of the obvious drag and prop freewheeling while sailing. Would love to here from other 387 owners about their experience.

Andrew, I am currious what you decided to do. I can't give you my experience as I have none. My new 387 hull #136 is due to arrive in a week or so and I wanted the stock 3 blade for manouvering purposes as I didn't plan on any serious racing. Again, you have the experience and I would like to know your thoughts.
