Hi all, please excuse me if this is a nieve question
but would this prop be suitable for a 8 hp outboard pushing a 2.8 mtr sib with inflatable keel 2up total weight 220 kgs
, and getting "on the plane".
The reason I ask is that this is my set up and to say the performance was woefull would be an understatment
. The engine revs would not raise above 2-2500 rpm whilst in gear (revs to 5500 out of gear) and we had a huge wash from the prop plenty of torque but no speed
The sib was set up right pressure etc, the engine is in top nick for its age spot on compression, spark plug, timing, 20/1 fuel ratio, if its not the prop am i asking too much from an 8 hp?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, be gentle
