Suzuki 25hp

I've bought a brand new engine, and would like to know if anyone has the same and if they have changed the prop? I have it on a Honwave T40. The engine is lovely, but wonder what would get her going through the water more quickly.

Any suggestions of which prop?

Any suggestions or a decent online ship for one?

Cheers

Ash

To consider repropping you need to know: 1. Current max rpm; 2. Current max speed; 3. Recommended max rpm; 4. gearbox ratio; 5. Current prop size. And are you likely to use it with more/less load from time to time.

A tiny tach(or copy) maybe a good start.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and ask you what your WOT revs are and what your WOT speed is?

While I'm on that limb I'm gonna speculate that you don't know?
