Re: Kiwi Prop
I have a Kiwi prop, next to no drag when under sail and good performance in forward. Putting the box into reverse is like pulling on a hand brake, I would like to find a way to reduce the pitch in reverse, but it works and I try to work with it. As for not having the room for a zinc, you could add a zinc to the hull and bond the shaft from the inside to the zink. its only the shaft you are protecting as the prop is all but inert.
