how would you know...
absent a folding prop, how can you tell which way the prop is oriented when you shut down the engine...
looked all over my boat for the "align prop vertically" switch, but i can't seem to find it.
really, when it gets down to it, unless you have a prop suitable for racing, i'm thinking one should worry more about a clean slippery hull, and spot on trim, than negligible drag from your prop.
i have an offset 2 blade, sail w/ it in R...not a lot i can do about the effect it has in the water, ergo, i try, (try being the operative word) to focus on eeking out all the speed from sail trim and weight distribution.
great day of sailing on the bay yesterday, worked my new crew hard(i think they'll be back)..now boat projects to finish.
have a great sunday all.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.
