Not sure why or what you mean about one engine
is working too hard? We have same eng and drives w the two bladed props.
What is your performance and consumption
like motoring? And any comparative data to other cats like yours w 2 bladed set ups?
Our 38 Athena motors in calm conditions 6 knots at 2500 we avg 2/3 gal per hour at this cruise
. 4.8 on 1 eng. Going to 3000 rpm
we gain maybe a knot
Not sure where you are but it seems we tend to motor
more then sail. If motoring perf is great. Id keep the 3 blades unless they are killing your sailing.
Another fyi we gain half a knot
when sailing w drives in neutral. They do hum a bit more and if it's lobster or crab season we keep them locked in gear
to prevent snags. Folders may be your best bet.
