Tery,

It would be helpful for you to give a little more detail, such as:

- what prop do you have on at the moment?
- why do you want/need to change it? What are you hoping to achieve - higher top speed? Better acceleration? Use of full rev range?
- what revs are you getting with it at the moment?

If it's advice on alternative props to that supplied with your Yamaha, call or e-mail www.steeldevelopments.co.uk

Their website gives good info.

(pleased to see another Ribeye on the forum)

maybe worth a try

for real good acceleration 19 pitch high five merc prop
decent bowlifting and stern lifting capabilitie lower topspeed

19 pitch yamaha black stainless steel is prop with lots of slip on take of
not much bow lift when trimming middel topspeed
no sternlift

small hub trophy plus 4 blade 19 pitch
good bowlift lots of sternlift highest topspeed
highest topspeed with a heavy load in the boat


type of prop depents on what your boat needs
if you need bowlift or bow and stern lift or no lift

the prop you have now is giving you no ventilation on take off
so you don,t have a good take off
engine tork is not strong enough for your prop

Go for 17" pitch ybut ou will lose on top end. What is the boat weight? It must be top heavy.
I have supper acceleration - even going from 4500 revs to 5800 revs -and 52-57 knots at WOT (depending on sea state and number of people on board) with a Yamaha 21" Pro.
Why you don't use the Yamaha standard SS prop that is designated for this engine?
To find the best test a few (difficult thing to do in Greece I know) and decide which is the best. Can't think that people can actually tell you just like that what is the best prop for your boat unless they have the EXACT same boat and engine All the rest is all pies in the sky. Always IMHO

Pete,

I found plenty of remedies at the SBS, only problem is, I don't think my good lady wife will let me take on!
