1985 Nonsuch 30 Ultra. WAVE DANCER, #283. Lovingly maintained by me, the third owner who is a retired mechanical engineer and has been working on sailboats for over 60 years. I bought the boat with the intention of cruising. My wife has lost all interest in cruising and, thus the reason for selling the boat.

I am thinking of getting a folding 2-bladed propeller for my Nonsuch 30 Ultra. I know the shaft size is 1 inch. Does anyone know the diameter and pitch for such a propeller and if that information varies from prop manufacturer to prop manufacturer for the same boat? That is, can I just shop aroun
