Propeller size

Hi,

I have to change our feathering propellor and would like to install a folding two blades from Flexofold.Engine is a Universal M35 (30hp) with a ratio of the gearbox 2:1 (it was changed from the original).

Flexofold came with a first option of 16*11 and the boat was clearly over pitched, doing a WOT under charge of 2.700, but 7knots!

Now they propose 15*10. We mainly race the boat so would like to remain with two blades.

Suggestions are more than welcome!

Regards and thanks.
