Img15.gif Features At a Glance:

 bugs6_nav.cmp The Kiwi Feather Prop delivers maximum thrust in both forward and reverse from its three large blades

   bugs6_nav.cmp Reverse thrust equals forward thrust for maximum maneuverability

bugs6_nav.cmp As each individual blade is free to pivot when sailing, each blade is individually aligned with the ever changing water flow brought about by the movement of the boat and the differing installed shaft angles. Drag is minimised. There is no need for a shaft lock to prevent auto-rotation as is common in geared propellers
   bugs6_nav.cmp Zytel, a modern DuPont composite, eliminates corrosion potential.

     bugs6_nav.cmp Fits all Saildrives, plus industry standard imperial and metric shaft tapers.



The light weight Zytel blades and hydrodynamic blade tips provide for very smooth running at all speeds.
