Prop size and pitch

Just getting back into mucking about in boats after a 10yr lay off with motorbikes.

As a gentle starter to brush up the basics I recently aquired a 3.3m qucksilver Sib and separatly purchased a 1995 9.9hp 2 stroke OB.

My qustion is whats the best all round prop for this sort of set up. Last weekend i got it out on the Ouse for a shake down but it felt like it was strugling to get up on the plane. It reved out freely enough so i suspect the pitch may be set up for pushing a larger vessel. the engine ran smoothly enough so no issues there, just the lack of knots.

Any ideas on sizes and pitch?


Cheers.

Is your outboard the 9.9hp Yam in your profile?

What's the current prop size?
