Depends a bit on the transmission. 1:1, 3 blades work well and spin up more quickly. Gear reduction, sometimes 4 blades work better for holding power and throwing a nice wake. Really a case by case thing.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
