Re: 3 blade prop or two blade folder

The performance hit is way worst than the credit one gets too!

I would go with a 3 blade folder if it were me. i ahve a 2 blade max prop, wish it was a 3 at times, But I go thru and battle a few currents here in the salish sea, so a 3 blade does deliver a bit more bite than a 2 blade......I would not want a fixed 3 blade on ANY sailboat! a 2 blade is bad enough!
