They gave you good advice. I said all other things equal, go for the 4 blade, but you got a motor that needs to spin, less blade is better. 73" is a big diameter, but skinny blades. Test them up to 3,400 RPM or so to find the sweet spot.

Looks like a sweet ride, I'm with Kwan, send us some future vacation pics and video.

We are running to hunting at our places (small water areas with plants around), but everywhere was ice covering. And we are ran to border delta of rive Volga and Caspian sea.

I checked my previous data about gear ratios and found a mistake:

1st - 4,35 (not 5,1);
2nd - 3,14 (not 3,4).

But it is not bad. I think it is big potential for using the 1st gear.
