Welcome to the Forum, if you do a search for props you will find this subject covered many times, but basicly find out what your recommended wide open throttle REV range your outboard is and choose a prop/props that perform in that range.

Stick the 23" Stainless steel one on and give it a go. I would guess the this might be a bit big for a 115hp and a pitch drop to 21" be more suitable.

Just phone your local dealer and ask there advice and what the WOT is for that particular engine.

I have got a 5.8 meter Joker Clubman with also a F115.

I have tried several types and the one that came out best was a Michigan 13 3/8 x 19 Balistic SS prop. It gave me much more grip on water when at high speeds and the motor trimmed up very high. Also in high speed and quick turns you will have lots of grip.
This prop came out much better than teh original Yamaha props even the pro-ones.
Weight of my boat is about 550 kilo's without fuel. Without too much load she makes 6000 to 6100 revs.

I hope this helps.

Dan.

I purchased it from the importer in Holland. Europrop Federal.
I think that you would have look for a dealer in the UK ?

Normaly it costs about 450 euro's. Compare that with the Yam props !! That's half the price! A Yamaha pro costs 1100 euro.

Good luck.

Dan.

Would be worth having a chat with Julie at Steel Developments, for a girlie she does know an awful lot about propellors and has always been very helpful to Ribnet members, she posts on here occasionally
