Default Prop balancing and sharpening

Hi. I'm pretty new to rc boat racing. I wanted to know the best way to balance and sharpen 2 and 3 blade props. I have a Shockwave 36, a 43"Sprint Cat and a 37" deep v with a K&B 3.5 OB. Thanks.

RCBM recently did a small article on it. Check out www.funrcboats.com , they have a nice area with pix on how to do this.
Don't be shy, it's not that hard for anyone to do.

You're welcome, I try. You ought to see the pile of links that I have, they come in handy a lot.
BTW, I bought 4 props during the winter from a big producer of finished props to see how their quality was against the ones that I've done myself and found out that I really don't do too bad. I'm using mine as back-ups to those props. I just don't get into the fancy stuff yet like cupping and different cuts on the blades.
