Currently my prop has the #'s 2076R 13 on it. It appears speed and rpm's factor in when looking at stainless props. My boat tops out at 5200 rpms and 27 mphs with myself and minimial gear. What pitch should i be looking for and what brand of stainless prop? Thanks......
Your going to want to drop a pitch to maintain rpms. I would go with either a Powertech REB3 12 or the Quicksilver Silverado in a 12 pitch both good props. Once you get the stainless prop on you maybe able to raise motor a hole to increase performance alittle more.
