Re: Beneteau First 345 prop choice

I bought a Campbell Sailor recently and like it so far. Before installing it I used some image analysis to compare the blade area to the Michigan Sailor 2 blade that I pulled off of my boat. The 14x8" CS 3-blade actually had less blade area than the 16x10" 2-blade that it replaced. It seems to work just as well and runs a little more smoothly.

I'm not sure why you are motoring a sailboat when it is windy though?
