Prop

I asked Omar what prop he was using, everything begins with the prop!

Well, thanks to all for the valuable information. It does seem like my problem would be more correctly identified as ventilation rather than cavitation. And it seems that the extension should help, at least in theory.

I´m not sure whether I should consider my inflatable of "weird design", you can look at the pictures of such boats on the manufacturer´s website, www.seaeagle.com

I'll let you know if I perform this change, the outcome.

Regards,

Omar

Oh, about the prop, I am not sure I can give a detailed answer to that one. All I know is that the prop the outboard has is the one that comes as standard equipment with the outboard. I've never given any consideration into replacing it...Should I be?

Omar,

Take a look at the center of the prop. Maybe you are lucky enough to identify the prop's characteristics from the front. In any other way you must uninstall the prop and look at the back.
If that's of any help.

props

These days props are an art and left the world of Science behind ages ago! I would be so bold as to say that most problems are caused with the WRONG prop. Contact a company in England called Steel Developments and give them all the info they require to sort you out with the correct prop for your boat and application.
