West by North is the "place" they are the manufacturer. The Michigan Sailer is not the same.

You can get thin bladed props from providers like Michigan Wheel's Sailer. These have a standard cross section they just have less blade area and hence less drag than a wider blade. The Campbell has a cupped type blade which is a unique blade cross secgtion and West by Northwest in Vancouver is the only one that makes this design .

I think the true "Campbell" prop is only made in BC... there may well be 'knock offs' around.

cutterorient I replaced a Luke feathering - for sale by the way - with the CS as I wanted a single piece of metal for my prop in the spirit of keeping it simple. I am very satisfied with it and Norm is a great help. Nice thrust. As far a reverse is concerned my boat is a wreck going backwards so I avoid it. I find it easier to just push it out of the slip despite her weight. Pulling into a slip I need to come in hotter than others to be able to still steer and the reverse thrust is more than adequate. Also, the coating that it comes with from the factory is superb at repelling barnacles.

dacap06 Thanks, folks. Those replies really helped me with my decision.

winddancer88 I switched to a Campbell Sailor a few years ago and noticed more power, and along with that more prop walk. That wasn't a bad thing -- the prop walk is strong enough now I can make use of it.

fordo When I repowered my Tartan 30 I changed from the 2 blade to a three blade Campbell Sailor. Reverse is fine; the prop seems to make no difference. I have no experience with folding props so I can't say about them...

Maine Sail I can't comment on the two blade CS but my three blade has more bite and better stopping/backing than my Michigan three blade did. Tough I don't use it much for docking when I come into the dock and hit reverse it stops the 17,000 boat well.

Backing sailboats is something that takes practice. A prop will generally only make a marginal difference. Also some gear boxes have a different ratio in reverse..
