Ageed, you really have to measure carefully to change the shaft length to fit any of the feathering props. They all have to be right up close to the shaft log housing so they clear the rudder cutout, and are able to be installed. You can also cut some off the end of the shaft log, or cut some out of the rudder and re-fiberglass it. Seems like some work involved, but the increased performance under both sail and power makes it worth it. That is providing you have lots of extra "boat bucks", as the props are pricey.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
