Have just ordered a Yamaha 115 for our new to us Ribeye A600 and have been asked which pitch peop we would like; what are people running on a similar setup?

What prop is currently on it and what's the max rpm at full throttle with that prop ? If it doesn't have a prop I would use the size Yamaha recommend for that gearbox with a 17-18pitch ( starting point ) .

Thanks Jon. No prop presently; new engine arriving next week, have been asked what pitch I would like.
I shall have a look at the Yamaha website.

Most dealers will loan you a prop to get a starting point from before they supply the correct one. Presumably the engine comes with a prop of your choice of pitch best idea is beg or borrow one to try find your rpm etc and work from there
Its difficult to prop from a chart as all boats are different real world numbers are far more accurate.
Alternatively you could ask ribeye what they supply if fitting the same engine

A friend runs an Avon 620 with an F115. Goes well with a 17 Stainless prop. I had a Humber Destroyer 6.0 m , same engine with a 19 prop. Very fast but it was narrower with a lot less seating. Id venture the 620 would be quite similar to your boat so get a loan of a 17 as a start point and try before you buy. Better underpropped than over propped.

Here is a website that should help you select the right prop.

I m running a 17 pitch 3 blade k series on a f130 (same block as a 115). This on a 610 brig navigator and is geared for all round performance. I think I d start with that on your set up.

Yamaha US have a performance report on a 550 pro running a 115, going by this a 16 pitch might get be closer or even a 15. Depending on the total weight your own boat will end up this report should help get you close https://yamahaoutboards.com/en-us/ho...-18-2018-1_inf

Personaly I have two props for different payloads, small pitch when carrying extra dive gear, fuel, water etc on extended long range trips.

My earlier quote was for aluminium prop, the same size in stainless will often reduce rpm by 200.
