Although some water drag exists when purely sailing with my 22" three-blade prop, when the wind dies and there are places to go, I sure appreciate the thrust it provides when coupled with my turbo 90hp iron genny. Another benefit is increased maneuverabilty in reverse - a godsend when backing down in tight quarters.
