Re: 3-blade fixed prop recommendations?
To free it I just give a quick blast of revers and it's gone. I would think we'd get more with a fin keel but perhaps not...
We have a "fin keel" on our Irwin Citation 34 and we bought and installed a Campbell Sailor this past spring and used it this summer.
Our old Michigan three blade (I called it a "tug boat prop") was a major weed magnet and nothing would get the weeds off except going for a swim.
Like Maine Sail says - a quick bit of reverse (usually) takes the weeds off the new Campbell Sailor. Two times this summer, once off Petit Manan and once just off The Wolves in the Bay of Fundy it took a quick swim to get them off.
So, I happily add my recommendation for the Campbell Sailor prop.
