Changing prop brands has made as much as 2" or more in pitch to me (Yam F60). Blade area and/or small changes in diameter is ALOT more important than any of the pitch calculators would have you believe.

The 6 bolts is rediculous, you could remove the middle ones on each side and fill those holes, then raise the engine.

Coachrib has the new Yammie 70hp (jammy dodger ) on his XS 5.3.

Is that with or without VAT?

I did wonder about various makes of prop and the differences.........I guess with SS being the more 'business' end of the market it could make quite a difference. Thanks for the info captnjack.

Is coachrib about? and can he / she answer any of the above questions (substitute XS for Destroyer.....)


Blue is the new Orange!
