I do not have info you are looking for however I did contact Kiwi USA and spoke to Jules, Jacque??
He is very helpful and loves to talk about sailboats.
One thing I have to consider it that there is no place for a zinc on the Kiwi prop. Since I have no room on my shaft for a collar zinc I would have to mount a hull zinc and bond with a shaft brush.
He could only recommend a size for my 31 based on the engine since my model was not in his data base. Maybe the 37 is??

Thank you for the reply.
