One thing I haven't heard mentioned, although maybe it was as I have not re-read this in its intirety, is the fact that there is a considerable trough behind the blade when it is fully powered up, i.e. the power side of the blade is fully covered whereas the back of the blade is maybe only two-thirds covered with water at the properly powered finish. Isn't into this trough that the blade is feathered almost instantly at the finish? It seems to me (and Caustic and Frank, I'm sure) that the blade can be feathered into this trough without slowing the boat down at all. You can then lift the blade higher to clear rough water as move into the recovery.
