I would like to take the opportunity to express my thoughts about the Autostream Feathering propeller I purchased in November 1998. I fitted the propeller to the boat (and I have very few engineering type skills) without any undue difficulty. The boat is a Catalina 42 and had a fixed three blade bronze prop from new. I found the difference in performance quite amazing. 1. Sailing speed increased by ( I reckon) 1.5 to 2 knots on average. 2. Motoring performance forward improved by achieving faster speeds with lower engine revs after adjusting the pitch- which wasn’t that difficult and carried out whilst the boat was in the water. I achieve 2.1 litres per hour @ 7 knots with a Yanmar 50hp 4 cylinder. 3. Reversing improved and transverse thrust has been almost eliminated. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase on both performance and price levels. Thankyou for your pre- purchase guidance.
