Re: 2 blade or 3 blade propeller

Hello,

I'm a new member. I'm buying a new Marshall Sanderling and am deciding on a two blade vs three blade prop for the 10 hp Nanni 2.10 diesel. Is there more drag with the 3 blade? Is the three blade quieter with less vibration? I am interested in getting max thrust in a tidal outlet to the Atlantic.
