I am looking at putting a folding prop on my boat and was wondering about other peoples experience with this. Who do you recommend? What size did you get?

When I bought my used P-31 II it had a feathering (not folding) two blade MaxProp on it, and a feathering three blade MaxProp as a spare. After discussions with PYI, makers of MaxProp, I installed the three blade. The installation wasn't too difficult and it works great in forward and reverse. Its hard to say if I see a big advantage vs a fixed prop, but since it came with the boat I'm using it and it works fine. By the way, the people at PYI were great to deal with and I would highly recommend them from a customer support standpoint.
