    17 pitch prop

    EXCELLENT! What model prop did you end up with?

    Simrad Totalscan Spraying Water

    Your wife is gonna be looking for that Tupperware lid! haha

    17 pitch prop

    Yes, please do! Give us a run down on the model and its performance when you get it.
  4. Hurricane, I figured it would be perfect for the Davis island ramp to rinse off before I take the ride home. Right now I have one of the expandable waters hoses in the back of the truck and I love it. It is nothing like carrying a regular water hose and can be made very small as to not take up much room. I figure with the small water hose and this compact gun I will be able to get the salt water off my boat and trailer at the ramp. I looked at the washer again last night and it has a 20 ft hose that you can put in a bucket to siphon water from if you don't have access to a spigot. Smilemaker, I am from Summerville, SC and am familiar with pluff mud! haha
  5. I got this for a gift the other day. Gonna load it into the truck and try it at the ramp after I load the boat on the trailer at the end of the day. It is battery operated so I would only need to bring some soap or spray foam to soak the boat and trailer down and let the washer do the rest. seems pretty neat so far but it takes a rocket scientist to figure out all the gadgets that come with it! haha https://www.worx.com/hydroshot-portable-power-cleaner-bundle-wg629-1.html?gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=CjwKCAjwndvlBRANEiwABrR32AEy2VRsz7mb0v8Uu8IBP_RVVnVEI8KdI-rVqQa-1OF2OcA2KmIoRhoCggIQAvD_BwE

    Fuel senders

    Curious WFF, what mileage do you get by doing that on your boat?

    17 pitch prop

    Howdy, I am going through the same thing as you. My friend just purchased a 97 hewes bayfisher 18' with a 115 2 stroke. He asked me to help with propping. He has a beat up 19 pitch 3 blade that was running 42 mph at 5300 rpms with 2 people and a cooler full of cold beverages. I let him borrow a solas titan HR 4 blade I have in 17 pitch. Same load, same day and we got 5800 rpms at 45 mph. The 4 blade is fast out of the hole and he likes it. So far he is sold on the 4 blade and they are cheap online (compared to others I have bought) I have a 2007 redfisher with a 115 2 stroke which is a different body style. I ran it on my boat with 3 people, livewell full and the prop is fast out of the hole. Ran to 6,000 rpms super fast but I could only muster 47.2 mph on a long straight away. I hope this helps. Any questions feel free to ask.

    No More Muffs Fo Me !!!

    Does it have a drain plug to empty it or you just leave it full of water somewhere at your place and back up to it?

    18 Master Angler re-power

    I am pretty sure I have heard the same thing, in order for the warranty to be valid a dealer had to hang the motor or do the initial startup, maybe both.

    Scott Deal Talks Flats Boats

    I watched it and it was brutal on those boats! There was a huge storm the first leg and more than one boat had broken trim tabs along the route. One boat, I forgot which, broke its jack plate and the pit crew took it off while the boat was refueling and they stayed in the race! I think all of them lost there poling platforms at some time of the journey. They are definitely REAL MEN that drive that challenge! Kudos to all that participated!

    New engine/new prop

    that is great news! Can you post your numbers (speeds and RPM's) from before with the 130 Yamaha for comparison? I promise not to ask about gas mileage on the Yamaha. haha

    2000 MA Repair Thread - Stringer issue

    DITTO! STILL READING! It's a wonder you did not start a gofundme page so people could donate to your cause? Heck, I have seen some doozies for gofundme ideas! haha

    haha, props testing is best done alone so you only scare yourself! Always find a long fairly smooth straight away and open it up WOT. Hit the trim button a little at a time and let the boat settle each time, trim a little more and let it settle. You will get to a point where you trim and the motor gets louder (prop starts slipping) but you are not going any faster. Trim the motor back down to the previous setting and remember that setting (how many bars) on your trim gauge. Remember to trim back down when slowing down or getting ready to turn. You can always trim back up or trim the engine more level to get the best trim angle for the speed you are running. I hope this helps

    The spitfires x7's seem to be great props for the smaller 90-115 HP motors. It says the max RPM range for you motor is 6K. I believe I would try the 17 spitfire and trim it out and let it rip!
