But a 4 blade with smaller blade area could work too. But not needed if a 3 blade has enough blade area. You only need a 4 blade if the 3 blade has insufficient blade area.
If that's the case then I may not need an additional blade as i am currently running the 3 blade version of that 4 blade in the pic. The 4 blade is what austral said I could fit. What is the benefit of that extra blade? will I notice it?

Yeah mate a couple of pages back I listed pics from the calcs

Then, the owner is happy. That's important.

Less blades = more efficient. More blades = easier to balance.

there are other items too.

Mat, to be honest, I really doubt you'll need anything more than what you've got, and that $2600 better spent on other stuff. My Clipper 34 went extremely well with a 3 blade prop, with plenty of power, no cavitation, and the right sweet spot. Your boat weighs about the same as well.

Peter do ya think Matt has the clearance?
If so you may be the perfect one to respond. Only real difference is probably the weight. An inch less pitch should even things out. For Matt’s research what dia and pitch and gear was in your boat? Looks real good to me but the gear ratio and clearance may take it out of a near perfect match.

Other owners of very similar boats could narrow it down.
Matt whats your prop clearence?

Eric, if you scroll back to his photo of his present set-up on the last page to Hendo's post #4718, you'll see his clearance is virtually exactly the same as mine was. Frankly I doubt that all this propellor stuff is really the fine tolerance rocket science some try to make it out to be, causing unnecessary anxiety. I suspect Matt Hendo's set-up will propel his vessel just fine.

I installed a 3 blade instead of 4, not as well balanced but does the job. In the toilet at home,so it`s a tough gig .
Save your $, Matt, see if there`s a problem after splashdown. My IG has 3 blade props and it`s fine. A boat I inspected with 4 cyl Cummins Bs changed to 4 blades,they replaced engine mounts, so? vibration. You`ve a Perkins 6, wait and see, lots else to spend $ on.

Thanks Pete. Itís really reassuring to know you had a similar set up, size and weight and you had no issues. Such a relief. You have no idea how much Iíve layed in bed tossing and turning worrying about this. Thanks mate

That could make a huge difference.

Well today was spent scratching up the whole boat in 320grit read for priming on Saturday and then I got the cut and polish out to clean up the glass door and fixed door panel. There has been a collection of crap that has been on them throughout the past 3 years. I havenít bothered to clean them before but itís time now so the buffing machine came out with some heavy duty cutting compound and now the glass doors are mint..!!! Just have to do the 3 windscreens and the 4 side windows now

Right, good to know you are doing something, was thinking you just got a break to rest and procrastinate, I was worrying!
