Well if you want to try Stainless I have a 17 Michegan Rapture that used to be on the 80 Yam I had. WOT was 4200 on my old boat, if your passing for a day in the Solent then stop by and try it out.

You never know, you might just buy it off me

Thanks for the offer mate, but i really DONT want a stainless
with my boatmanship its better if something cheap is the weak link in the chain
The Michegan match is ally.........see below from their website.
also everyones recomendation seems to be the yam K series is the poodles privates for an OEM prop anyway.


"Michigan Match propellers are backed by Michigan Wheel's limited lifetime warranty.--High gloss black powder coat finish minimizes speed loss from drag and protects aluminum propeller."

Yes, I've used a Mich Match prop I bought back from the states and is just as good as the K prop.

However if you ever what to try the stainless one then you're more than welcome to borrow it. I think that Nos has a 17 Rapture, ask him what it's like on the Searider.

Had one-sold it. It wasn't very good-max revs were too low and top speed dropped slightly.It'd probably suit a slippier hull better.The match is better on my Searider.
Holeshot was good though.
