Feathering Props

I was looking at an 18 RH 12 three blade feathering propeller considering a Gori since it reports to have a motor sailing feature.

Wondering if anyone has any experience or opinions.

I had a Gori 3-blade on my 387 #53 and had it taken off. It vibrated the entire aft section of the boat. I replaced it with fixed 3-blade. To be technically correct though, Gori is not a feathering prop, it is a folding prop. Our current local dealer recommended a Maxi 3-blade should I decide to get another folding/feathering prop. Others on this list have Flex-o-Fold and love them. I had one on my 320. It was a great prop.

No experience with the Gori but I have a Flexofold 17 x 11
