Upped the pitch and Baffled by the results
So I've got a small rib/tender 3.2mtr alloy hull, with a 25hp rude....it goes pretty good 26knots.... But the the prop was pretty shaggy so I tidied it up with I metal file then wet and dry sand but thought I would get another prop to have as a spare
The original prop was oem 10/13p the prop I purchased cheap second hand but good condition is 10/15p also oem
My expected results were to lose some bottom end but gain up top so I held off using this prop for a couple of weeks while I've been pulling the kids around on toys and playing in the surf. I have now changed to the 15p,prop and am super surprised that I've gained a nice pace at idle, a better smother speed at cruze, faster pop out of the hole and way more usable power low and mid range, it seems I've actually lost a bit of top end but I am not at all fased, but totally confused.. The 15p prop is now staying put intill I can figure which the best setup for me will be???
I am thinking a new 13p with some cup to have as a spare and surf prop?? Any advice would be appreciated
