So I currently running a 4 blade on my 2017 SN 200. Unfortunately we hit a shallow rock at idle and prop now needs repair and/or replacement. The question is "Does a 3 blade prop or a 4 blade prop make for a softer wake to cross?" or is it just so minimal that I should just stick with the 4 blade? Also, what comes stock on Nautique 200's and MasterCraft ski boats? 3 or 4 blade? I would imagine the both companies test their boats and put the best prop on (3 or 4 blade) for best performance.
Any advice would be awesome! Don't want to miss another weekend of skiing since this time of year is my favorite time...dawn that wetsuit and go!!
