Thanks everyone. I gather from the responses that a "streaming" type of prop can make anything up to about a 8 - 10% difference in light winds over a fixed prop but the benefit fades away as windspeed increases.
That is certainly significant, especially around here, with our notoriously light summer air.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
