Re: 3-blade fixed prop recommendations?

I see you have an external bearing support, thus the prop is much farther away from the deadwood; on my boat it's very close to the deadwood as the cutless bearing is pressed into the deadwood itself. In fact, there's no room for a zinc ahead of my prop; I use a "doughnut" zinc clamped to the propeller nut. You might try a doughnut zinc ahead of the prop and see if it helps.
