props

I have a Heritage 35 which has a ferryman s30 22hp diesel engine driving a hydraulic pump and motor. At the present time I have a 2 bladed prop 16 x 10 LH. The prop seems to work ok at 2200 rpm constant and I can get 6.5 knots however going into a strong wind / waves lose a lot of the power and slow down considerably. Are ther any recommendations for a fixed 3 bladed prop???

In addition am going to the salt water next year for an extented time. Presently have vc tar with a pettit hard bottom paint and would like to put on the petitt trinidad sr,
any problems here, do I have to take off the vc tar

thankyou for your help
