2"s less pitch for an extra blade is a rule of thumb. I wouldn't expect any gain in empty RPMs.

How ever, 2"s might be enough to get you on plane loaded.

I have always powered mine the other way. My last 50 hp, a Pro Yamaha was on a 365 lb Alumicraft rated for a 40 hp Max.

Finally got around to getting a new 3 blade 11.6 X 11 prop. This did the trick for the high altitude lakes. Will plane two guys easily, 5500 rpm at 23 mph. Thanks for all of the info guys.
