    Prop Selection

    I have a 2001 Master Angler 21 with a VMAX OX66 225 and need a little help selecting a new prop. Has anyone had experience with the ELE PowerTech props? I'm thinking of the 3 blade 14 1/4 21 pitch. If anyone else has this boat engine combo I'd love to hear from you. Thanks, Dan
  3. Bought this as a spare and doesn't end up fitting my engine. My bad. Made for Evinrude/Johnson. Just trying to recoup what I paid for it. 100$. Located Gulfport, FL. Will ship for $$. Venmo/Paypal. Text 813.833.5039 or PM here OST3R17POM140
  4. Re-posting to place the topic on the forum correctly... thanks. Redfisher 16 (2017), Yamaha VF115 SHO, Atlas 6" Jack Plate + (1/2" wedge), Merc SpitFire X7 17P 4-blade See attached chart for test results. Out of 10 props tested, these 7 props made it to the final report. Many well-deserved thanks go out to Dale Carter (lurem), a fellow RF 16 owner and prop guru who loaned me three of his own custom propellers to use for testing. Also, many thanks to Skip Lyshon at MBG and the staff at Bay Marine Inc. for all their help, expert advice, and prop swapping. This is the first and only Redfisher 16, so far, to be ordered with a factory rigged 115 VMAX SHO. It's slightly heavier than the 4-stroke 90, so the boat sits a bit lower on the stern. But, I don't care about draft where I fish. The goal here was to find the perfect prop which would utilize the strong performance of the SHO, and minimize porpoising and cavitation in turns at higher speeds. After many trials, there was a clear winner - the Mercury SpitFire X7 Alloy 4-blade. The only difficult choice then, was pitch size. I chose the 17 pitch because I plan to add more weight to the boat. I tried different PVS port plug inserts but ended up going with the solid plugs because porting is not needed on the 4-stroke SHO. Porting is more beneficial for hole shot on a 2-stroke. The SpitFire X7 does not break loose in turns. It handles and accelerates like a slot car. Throttle response is immediate. Hole Shot is 3 seconds (or less). Best fuel economy was 7.9 MPG at 3800 RPM. Porpoising has been minimized. Prop slip is 4%. Gary Prop_Tests5.pdf

    2012 24 TRS 300 yamaha prop

    New to the MBforum. Came from dark side, sold my Ranger and bought Pathy (2012 24 TRS with 300 Yamaha, boat also has a top). Looking for correct prop probably 4 blade, anybody have experience with prop information. I am sure this will not be last question. thanks, Daileydeposit
  6. I have a 2004 MA 18 with a 2017 Mercury 150 fourstroke, I am currently running a 3 blade Mercury thunder bolt 21p. Speed and RPM are not an issue, however, I am getting some prop chatter around some sharp turns. I want to switch to a four blade prop. I do have a jakeplate, engine setback is 4.5’. I was wondering if anyone had the same setup and could help me in selecting the right 4 blade prop. Thanks in advance.

    Yamaha F150 Prop

    Hello, I am looking for advice/willing to buy a prop for my 2010 Pathfinder TE with fiberglass T-top that is running Yamaha F150. It currently has a power tech OFX-3R18PCL200 which is obviously a 18 pitch prop. It struggles a little getting on plane with a loaded boat (not awful but could be better) but it is only getting up to 5200 RPM at WOT. Looking for advice on how to figure out which prop is best (4 blade/3 blade, pitch, diameter, ect) and which brand i should go with Power Tech or Yamaha. Let me know what your thoughts are or if any are for sale. Thank you!
  8. I have a Yamaha HS4 21p 4 blade prop for sale. It was originally a 23p prop, but I had it modified to 21p with extra cup. Works and looks like new. Asking $350 OBO, can meet in Ellenton/Sarasota area. Will ship free within Florida... or $25 outside Florida. Call, Text, or Email. 941.224.5846 or jbibler at gmail.com Josh B.
  9. This auction is for a new never used Comprop 4x12.8x17 15 spline propeller. Model number M4547 . I bought it as a spare for my Yamaha 115 that was on my 18’ Hewes which unfortunately was totaled in Irma. It was stored under the helm wrapped in a towel and has never been used or mounted. Great deal for a lightweight easy to store spare prop. $50 and $15 shipping.

    HPXV 17 Prop Help

    I recently purchased a 2016 Maverick HPXV 17 with the Yamaha F70 motor. The current SS prop is marked on the outside with K16. After some research, I discovered the prop is a Yamaha MAR-GYT3B-V4-16. The motor can only hit 5500 RPM, trimmed out with no occupants on the boat and a very light load. I would like to get a prop that will help get the motor closer to 6300 RPM wide open. What are some of the props being used to achieve optimum performance with the F70 on the HPXVII hull? Thanks in advance.

    hewes tailfisher

    any thoughts on the size on a 4 blade ss prop. currently running a 3 blade 16p -runs ok could use better hole shot and top end 70hp Yamaha 2 stroke-17' tailfisher
  12. I have a 2003 18.5 MA with Yamaha 150 2 stroke. It came with a 23p Tempest 3 blade prop. 45ish at 5400rpm loaded down. I am not happy with the hole shot and wanted to try a 4 blade. After doing a bit of reading I decided to try a Powertech. My local boat dealer/service guy called Poertech and they are suggesting a 15p with my set up................19p is what I had in mind.....Anyone with a similar set up?
  13. I'm looking for a used PowerTech SCD4R - 15P - YM90. Prop testing to get the optimum out of Yamaha F70 on Maverick 17' HPXVII. Contact thru IM or txt Eight 6 three, 8 sixty, fifty eight, 63. Thx.
