The prop has to be installed up very close to the shaft log in order for the blades not to hit the rudder when the rudder is turned and under sail. Also the threads have to be cut shorter in order to assemble the hub onto the shaft. Not really a problem though if you have to switch back to a fixed blade prop in case of a problem with the Maxprop.
The prop works great in reverse, as well as in forward.

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!
