three blade prop

thanks all for input on T.B.P. At the moment I am sailing a 35 foot slug with a 45hp volvo tons of power but oh what a feeling in reverse I could prop walk across the bay before it straightens out if a three blade prop would help that it has to be worth it I can motor all day at 2000 rpm and 5.5 kts it''s just threading the needle backing in that makes me shiver. single handing with a center cockpit can give you a real rush. once again thanks and fair winds to all.
