Folding Prop for Outboard?

Anybody ever seen a folding prop for an outboard? My 8hp Honda is in a well and stays in the water all the time. It would be nice to minimize propeller drag with a folding prop.

I haven't seen that, but I don't see why not. On the other hand, any folding or feathering prop (and it might have to be feathering to replicate the pitch and area of a standard outboard prop) would almonst certainly exceed the price of any outboard I'm aware of.
