Re: Overpropped; What to do?

My boat is also overpropped. I was going to change back to the two blade that came stored onboard. I did wonder why the original owner changed it though. I learned why, motoring into a steep chop. She wants the power there more than I need the speed in smooth water. Your new three blade may be the right compromise.
I know the books all talk about the dangers of low rpm, etc. But my engine has run fine for decades like that.
