three blade prop

what are the advantages or disadvantages of a three blade prop can they make backing in a boat less of a thrill and how will it affect the moter ie wear,rpm,fuel comcusumption and other things that i can''t even imagine.also I have read somewhere that you should have a ratio of 1 hp to 1 ton of boat this doesn''t seem enough what are the thoughts of the experts
