I have a Hydralign feathering prop on the peterson and the rudder has to be "shaved" to remove this prop. In a 'closed' space which we and the acapulco seems to have, the prop is very noisy and needs as suggested earlier to be larger than a fixed prop.
My conclusion after the fact - was it worth it - I dont think so as I have to pull the shaft out next time she is out; so - cut into the rudder etc etc. I havent decided whether or not to put the old fixed prop back for a year or 2. We will be doing the weekend club racing stuff, so I could use the advantage, although it adds to the handicap time a bit. Eh - I dont know.
