Just like to sing some praise for the 3-bladed (AUTOSTREAM)feathering propeller I purchased from Martec.
I own a 35 foot Beneteau Oceanus 352 sailboat and had it docked at the Charleston Harbor Marina in South Carolina. Anybody familiar with this area will attest to the fact that there exists some of the strongest tides and currents, not mention winds, awaiting us sailors. Sailing was fun, but launching and especially docking was routinely treacherous. I replaced my fixed 3- bladed propeller with your Martec (AUTOSTREAM) 3-blade 16 inch feathering propeller and could immediately feel I had control of boat, especially in backing up and maneuvaring in tight canals.
I ferried the boat to its and my new home in Pompano Beach, Florida. During some low tides when on the Intracoastal, it handily backed me out of a couple of sand lumps in low waters.
I'm glad to have the boat now in Florida where the waters are less demanding and maneuvering in a small canal is even easier with my feathering propeller.
I must also mention that I particularly like the friendly and prompt services rendered supplying me with zincs.
Thanks Martec Engineering Corp!
