Prop Info Posts: Best format & Data

Recommended Posts

Prop questions for your Maverick can be posted here.

If you are going to post data, let's title the posts with model/year/motor/prop.

Like... 21 MA 2006 Yam 250 HPDI PT OFX 4bl.

This makes it easier to research the posts once they get large.

The best information on props for a specific year/model & specific motor will have this information: loading, speeds, general characteristics and any weakness.

A full layout of RPM/speed/GPH like the Perf. Bulletins for specific hull/motor/prop combo is helpful as well.

Different options like jackplates, TM/Batts, PP's/Talons, all affect the performance of light skiffs. Prop selections & info by our Members can help new owners a lot. Thanks, Folks !!

Hey Sir

I have a 2015 18 hpx with a 115 yamaha

currently running a 3 blade 18 pitch power tech prop

would a 4 blade do a better job.The 18 pitch moves the boat pretty good.

Going to 4 blades how much pitch would you reccomend?
