I am seeking a prop with the likelihood of reverse..  My MK V is now equipped with a non geared martec folding prop.

Are you finding the non geared prop, problematic?

Actually, I just bought this boat and I am planning to sail it from
Cape Breton to Halifax.( a 3-4 day open ocean passsage)  I have heared that reverse is iffy and thought that for this trip I should be using a more reliable prop.

What is your experience with this prop?

No experience with this type of prop, but I'll be installing one in 2014.
Reverse problems may be "prop walk" related. The boat going more to one side than the other.
My shipwright said they have in the past, been known to deploy only one blade, since they are not geared.
I think the odds of this is extremely low, especially if the blades are clean. The odds are possibly the same as Charles Lindberg having his engine stop over the Atlantic in the 20s. So I would use it and enjoy the extra speed.

I have a 2 blade fix that I might swap for the Martec folding?

Hi Kerry,

I put the prop issue on hold for a bit.  I want a geared one eventually and I will let you know if the martec becomes available.
