Re: Flex-O-Fold Propellor Users?

Make sure you are absolutely sure. I was specified a propeller last year that did not fit my boat. There was not enough room between the prop and the skeg for the propeller to properly fold. It took many months and emails/calls to get a refund. They no longer have a rep in the US so I was dealing with someone 5 time zones away.

Also, MaineSail has some good info on vibrations and Flexofold props. You should PM him.

BTW, I am very happy with our PYI Maxprop.
