Post Big blade the right choice?
New hull and GTR 40. Hull is a Havoc 656. Motor has roughly 3 hours on it. In river current that measures 0.7mph, I am running 31.2 at 4390. I can trim up a little more, hit 4550-4625 RPMs, but the prop loses bite. Would a big blade with cup added, grant me a tad bit more speed, and also help with hole shot? Hole shot isn't bad, but I need something to run in the timber during duck season, and to haul a load.

Why buy a new prop? Just send that one to Baggy and have an inch of pitch added and some cup. You’d have to do the same thing to a big blade.
