2 blade or 3 blade propeller
Thanks Jack. I will have to look up Gerr''s books. I like his writing and if Nigel recommended them....all the more. Nigel is a great guy. He really likes Hood 38''s too, so...that colors my opinion.
I am trying to ''ground truth'' the prop specs recommendation from Campbell by using some net resources (though would really like real world examples still). I have written Michigan wheel to get their recommendation...they have a similar "sailor" prop. A 3 blade with thinner blades for less drag. They said about 10 days to get back to me. Whew.
If your plans include more Med sailing this coming summer, check out La Maddelena. One of my favorite places and the one I''d like to get back to most.
