Jockey seating

Hi Guys

Got my eyes open for a 2/3 man jockey seat, second hand preferably in orange or black, would appreciate if anybody knows of anything,I'm on the south east coast.
Also any ideas on the correct prop for a Yamaha 85 2 stoke on a 5.3 humber attaque for general non load carrying puposes? Not sure on what the engine max revs are meant to be.

Cheers Woody

Hi Woody,

I would have thought a 17P standard ali Yamaha propeller would be about right. If you can borrow a demo prop to check that size would be an ideal place to start.

Good luck finding a jockey seat.

Cheers,
Sandy

I've just looked and currently swinging a 15P, I took her out for the first time thismorning and its like lightning off the mark but I'm worried its over revving, perhaps i'll try googling the rev range!

4500-5500 apparently. Mine runs at 5200 at WOT on the Searider with a 19p which appears to be about spot on, giving a good balance between accelleration and top end.

Thanks for the advice, I can't beleive how well it run today for a twenty year old engine, just need to get the boat tidy for the season now.
