another prop question...

I'm hitting the rev limiter all the time on my tohatsu 90tldi as i have a have quite a light set up and there is usually only ever two on the boat. Is the idea that you should never hit the rev limiter (unless you are in the air)? If so should i go up a couple of inches in prop pitch?

Generally, you prop to run in the upper part of the recommended max rpm range when loaded normally.

If you usually run light, as you said, then if I were you, I'd prop for that load.
