Will I notice a difference dropping 1 degree of pitch on my prop?
Hello all, I have a 4M Avon Searider with a "getting tired" Nissan 40 Hp. She labors getting up on plane with 2 people, and its a lost cause with 4 people. I currently have a 11 pitch prop and was going to replace it with a 10 pitch prop. Do you think dropping to a 10 pitch prop will make a noticable difference, or should I be looking at 9 pitch props?
The boat is equipped with remote steering/throttle, a full size deep cycle battery, and a 10 gallon fuel tank. As expected, there is an anchor stored under the seats, a spare prop, bellows, and some lines, add 600 lbs of people and she's pretty heavy.
