FeatherStream B-Hub 4B


Just had fitted a 4 blade FeatherStream prop to my Oyster 46 with Volvo D2 75 and 150S saildrive. The FeatherStream prop replaced my Volvo Penta 4 blade folding prop.

I have been very pleased with the performance of the FeatherStream. I estimate I have an additional knot of speed at 2000 rpm, more positive response in reverse and probably better sailing speed when feathered.

One had to engage reverse with engine stopped to fold the Volvo prop otherwise you could hear the sail drive spinning. Not necessary with the FeatherStream, can leave in neutral so in my mind that speaks to the lower drag when feathered!
