Upgrade S/S prop - Yamaha 40HP?
Has anyone ever upgraded their standard aluminium propeller on a 40hp engine? My Yamaha outboard is a 1995 (40V), autolube, 2-stroke, 3 cylinder, long-shaft unit.
Normally there are 3 adults on board, fishing gear and around 50 litres of fuel. I'm adding a Tohatsu 3.5hp auxilliary in the Spring - so there's another 15kg of ballast for starters!
Yamaha standard specification is 12 1/4 diameter x 9 pitch (G). I know they have a performance series stainless-steel 3-blade propeller, but it won't be cheap!
