I'm not at a marina right now - I don't even have a boat any more. I had to sell mine in 2007. Had a really great CT47 - but way too much to singlehand, too expensive, etc. I did find out that I was not a good singlehander after my partner left.

My gearbox has a ratio in forwarding of 2.36.
don't worry... I'm not American....I'm Italian :-)
I have a Kiwi feathering prop on my Beneteau 43, 4JH5E engine. It looks small and blades are a funny shape but it works perfectly. They set the pitch depending on size of engine, will need to know gearbox ratios, and it has full pitch in reverse…"
