    The boat obviously liked the blade area as it was downhill as you went to less. I agree that you should try 4 blades at the least. I don't understand why the RPM did not increase with the change from the 28 to the 25, are you sure the engine is making power? Good fuel flow? Plug your numbers in here:

    i got my 28 3 blade cou down to 16 dia took out some of the cupping and thinned the blade it came up 300rpm and went down 5mph in speed and then i tried my first rolla 17x28 62mph at 2700 rpm i think if i had a 17 or 16 24 rolla it would be good has anyone got one they would sell or lend or advice to give
