I want a bigger outboard.

I am about to trade in my Yamaha 60FE (late 80's) with PTT for a Yamaha 90 PTT 2s. The Rib Raid in Pwllheli showed me the the new console has changed the performance of my Searider quite alot i.e. slower due to increased weight I think.

I'm getting quite a good deal, but if anybody is interrested in grabbing my Yam 60FE for a reasonable price, let me now.(750).

What I would like to now though is what is the recommended prop for a 90hp Yam on a 5.4 Searider. I don't want anything special in the way of design and function, but the choices confuse me , ally, steel, 3 blades, 4 blades, pitch, size, colour etc.?

Narcosis,
I had a word with my mates about this, but they've decided to buy a new 75 e-tec instead.

It's probably ok, but would look out of place on your boat as it's 1990 vintage (no disrespect Narcosis, but Floater's boat is a bit shiny for it!)

It'll be more fun than a 30....Do it-you know you'll kick yourself if you don't.

Best guess a 19" prop, I have a 19" S/S Yamaha prop if you want to borrow it for the day, there is a 17" Ali in the garage too.
