I struggle beating the jetskiers on a flat day - but once there is a bit of chop, NO PROBLEM!! (and all my teeth stay in my head as well, which is a definate bonus.)

Does anyone know whether a 1" increase in pitch for an ali prop has the same effect as a 1" pitch change on a stainless prop?

Mine (SS) over revs, but only by about 100-150 rpm, so I'm not going to worry about it (too much). But would I lose the 'rough' guesstimate of 300 rpm if I went up an inch?!?

Also, are there any tablets I can get for my prop, as I get lots of offers via e-mail for increasing size by 'x'-inches.........

A 1" increase ion pitch equates to around 200 RPM decrease and Vica Versa. You could always get your prop repitched for a resonable sum, I believe Prop Revs, Poole charge around 40 squids.
