"Lake sailor" for well over 20 years, but have charter and offshore experience. Moved from 23.5 to 28.5 to 35.5 sailboats during those years. Bought current boat in Pensacola, FL. while living in Panama City Beach, FL. for 3 years where I sailed St. Andrew Bay and offshore in Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola to Port St. Joe. Moved boat back to Lake Travis after getting very tired of tourists and hurricanes.
Lake Travis, Austin,TX
Catalina Island, San Diego Bay, Pensacola, Panama City Beach, St. Andrew Bay, Port St. Joe, Charlotte Harbor, BVI., most all the Windward and Leeward Islands down to Grenada...Bequia is a favorite.
Would like to crew on boats mainly in the Windward Islands, Grenada, Grenadines, St. Lucia, BVI, Bahamas.

at the moment I prefer a Folding Prop due to better performance while sailing and also when "motoring".
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…"
Hi, This is my first post in the group and first of alll I want to say Hi at all. I have a Ben 40 with a yanmar 3jh4e (40cv) and I am thinking to buy a flexofold propeller. They suggest me a 18x13R. Have anyone experience with this boat and propeller in terms of sailing performance and boat speed under engine? Do you have data for boat speed at various RPM? Thanks. Best of all for everyone.See More
