    Hi Dave,

    This site is a good one for boat propeller basics and beyond.

    http://unitedboaterscoop.com/html/propeller-basics-part3.html

    The problem is they just don't make small engine propellers with the same performance characteristics as the larger ones that evolved from racing. I.E. I have never seen a raker surface piercing prop for a 15 HP. We raced the old Hurricane and Lightning Mercurys with a 2 blade prop. I haven't seen a 2 blade for a long time, other than a weedless version.

    Best regards,
    Frank_S
