    Ok, so I'm new with all this prop and engine stuff and I would like to learn a bit more about it. However, I seemed to be having trouble locating good information online about props. All anyone seems to want to do is sell them to you. So any explanations/ information/ help on these kinda things is greatly apprecieated!

    Thanks
    Charlie

    Cool, so now I have a decent idea on how the prop works. I have a Copperhead with a 30hp Tohatsu engine with stock prop. Any suggestiong to increase speed? Also, do four blades tend to increase efficiency as well as acceleration?
