Feathering Propellers

Feathering propellers acquired their name because of their similarity to a bird with its wings furled. They have a maximized propeller pitch and a blade surface nearly parallel to the water flow to minimize resistance when they are not in operation. Their properties are shown in sailing ships and double-ender ferries.
