Flex-O-Fold Propellers

Description

Hub & blade dim sketch

Please be aware:

  • Unlike the general perception, even as little as 8-10 mm of free space between propeller and hull will be fine on most boats.
  • Due to the nature of the propeller construction, folding blades are positioned further aft than a fixed propeller (see hub length) and thereby leave more space between shaft and hull.
