prop selection

Anyone have experience running a Honda BF50 on a Searider 4.1m?

I need to order a prop without having one to experiment with so I have no numbers.

I read about someone running 11x15 aluminum but I would like another opinion.

prop for Honda 50hp

No problem Maximus.With the BF50 you should be looking for 5500~6000 rpm. That is a long as you have a tacho fitted! So 14 pitch would be a good all round prop.If it does feel slightly more rpm needed you could have it re-pitched down 1"to a 13" or 1" up to a 15" if its over reving..but 5800~5900 you will be fine. Hope that gives you a good point to start..
Propeller man.
