Don't get too embroiled in variables other than pitch for a 50 Merc. The diameter should be around 10.5", some are 10.125", some are 10.625".

Get the pitch right with a standard spec Merc/Quicksilver prop and you'll be fine.

The prop dimension will either be cast into the heel of one of the blades, near the hub, or on the forward face of the hub centre, where it bears on the thrust washer.

15" pitch prop for Merc 50:

Indeed, you could get embroiled but you don't need to.

Don't get hung up on the diameter too much. Its the effective length, not the width that matters. Though some of us have both
