It will go better with a prop than without.

As to which prop, it really depends on what you're doing, how your boat is loaded, what your boat is, all kinds of variables.

A 4-bladed prop is better for quick starts, but a 3-blade is generally better for top speed. Kind of a balancing act, and often a rather subjective choice.
