Thats a great idea. He says it doesn't hurt performance, but common sense tells me otherwise.

Looks like a great idea. I hope it works as well as it looks!

That should be required for dive/snorkeling boats that go into areas with people (under the boat)in the water and endangered/threatened marine life. Otherwise, no thanks. It looks stupid too, unless you had a green boat.

Plus1.gif No kidding... there is a good reason why prop blades are sharp.

I don't care if it's a block of wood , a piece of fabric or finely honed stainless steel......anything spinning at hundreds of rpm is going to cause a problem when it comes into contact somebody's thigh, ankle, leg or arm!

Maybe, but why not try to make it as safe as possible? Dontknow.gif

Car accidents can cause a lot of injuries too, but why not keep looking for safer solutions like seatbelts, ABS, and airbags?

Exactly. This may not be the answer to making the prop as safe as possible, but it is a step in the right direction. Maybe someone else will take this design and modify it so it is safer and performs better. I like seeing things like this because it is progress.

Here's the key to success on this one: Make it a step up in safety plus increase speed and torgue plus allow us to back up to port, starboard or aft as we wish. There's a winner.
