Additionally, the windmilling propeller on the dead engine creates a lot of drag.
When the drive shaft has a marine propeller at one end, it moves a boat through the water.

One engine on the top of the aircraft is attached to large propellers that produce lift, much like a helicopter.
Once it takes hold it encrusts boat hulls and propellers , and chokes pipes and aquaculture.
The propulsion system drives two shafts with seven-bladed fixed-pitch propellers .
