    Blade Rake

The racers are using five blade props but I have yet to see them on a pleasure boat. Maybe that will change now. I am curious what the top speed differences are for three, four or five blade? I was just in a 120 mph 28 Skater a few weeks ago that my friend owns and he runs three blade Mercury lab 15 x 34.
    Since rake contributes to a prop's bow-lift / stern-lift characteristics, I wish it would be stamped on the propeller in addition to the amount of pitch. I really don't think the stern lift you mentioned was due to the addition of another blade, but more likely less rake.
