Looking for a S.S. High Five Mercury Prop. in 21 pitch. I'am not worry about top end just handling. Where is the best place to buy one and price? If anyone has one for sale, I might consider if's in great shape....Thanks Glen

I just traded in a Merc 115 with a Hi-5 on it. Since used motors rarely have a perfect match anymore with the prop you may want to call Olympic Boat Center at Minong, WI for a quote. They might be eager to get the prop out of there. (I don't recal the pitch, however.) Good luck... and ask for Doyle Brown 1-800-435-9309.

In the back of Bass and Walleye Boats mag there is one dealer, don't have it handy now, who had Hi-5's for under $500. That is a pretty good deal.

I have a 21" hi-5, but my brother would kill me if I sold it :) We like it a lot, as handling means more than speed to us these days.

Good luck,

Find a Reynolds Performance Marine ad in the B&WB magazine. You'll probably have it delivered to your door for around $400.

Thanks Guy's, But I really need a 21 pitch if I can find one. I called Reynolds Performance Marine but they don't carry the Mercury High Five. I have a Mercury Offshore series (same as Trophy Plus but with large hub)21 pitch that I got from the dealer that I'am trying out now. I'll keep looking for that Hi-5 21, just hate to pay that top dollar....Thanks Glen

I have a Hi-5 21 pitch prop for the bigger Merc V-6's and Merc alpha and bravo sterndrives. It is in good used condition, the leading edge has some tiny nicks, about 1/64 to maybe 1/32 inch, everything else is nicely polished. I have photos I can send you. The prop may have been rebuilt, there are some numbers stamped on the hub. I am looking for $290 and I will pay the postage. If interested email me back and I will get you my phone # etc. dkmpdlaw@msn.com

Glen,

Not my business, nor my money, but if you're as new to setting up a boat as you say, and your motor is mounted on the top hole now(lowest position?), then going with a 21P Hi Five could(likely will) be just another stepping stone on your way to the right setup. You'd be money & performance ahead by working directly with a custom prop shop. If you don't want to buy a new prop then a custom shop is even a better option...just talk to him(tell him the performance you have now & what you want), get an idea of the starting prop you'll need, find a used one, and have the shop make it do what you need it to do. You'll net out a little under what a new (stock) prop would cost and have a custom wheel that will make your boat do what you want it to do. If you need a reference of a guy to work with let me know. I'd guess you'd start with a LaserII, or maybe a Trophy, and go from there. A little added cup here, some rake there, and sharpening the leading edge and you'll be done & have a prop that'll perform better than any stock wheel. Most all custom shops will continue to work with you until your happy with the wheel & this is part of the orginal deal, no extra cash. Lasers & Trophys are easy to find on the used market...usually around $250.
