Three Blade Prop

Thanks all for thoughts on three blade prop. The engine was rebuilt last year and I assumed that 1500 was the proper rpm to motor at, using the higher rpm for emergencies. the instructor at sailing school had us running at that rpm.on my last boat with a 35hp turbo 1500 was plenty to go 4 to 5 knots and it was 16000 lbs thanks again I''ll just rev up a bit in the future I will also check out growth on prop bottom is ok
