Default Mercury Prop on Yamaha ?

Gents,

Someone told me that Mercury Props fit on Yamaha ouboards, is this true ? Is there a benefit to putting a Merc Prop on a Yamaha motor ? This person said there is. He used a Vengence prop on his 90 Yamaha and said it made a difference.

Fact or Fiction ?

Fact, you just need the correct hub kit to make it work. I'm running a Tempest on a VMax.

Yep, just need the right hub kit/thrust washer. I'm running a Yamaha prop on my 175 Optimax.

I've been wanting to put a Merc Vengence on my Yammy,
I see now Cabela's is selling a Quicksilver prop they
call silverado, they say compares to Vengence...
what is the difference? The one they have uses the Flo-torque
or whatever hub kit too - is it just a marketing thing, different
name for same thing?

Also wondering is the "II" version the newest hub? I thought I
read something about a "III" version?

>what is this hub kit?

from what I can understand, it is a hub, splined to fit the
prop shaft on the id, and with an irregular shape that fits into
the prop itself, in a way so it can't turn - mayby oversimplifying,
but like prop has a square hole that square hub fits into.

So props can be universal, fit different motors with just a different
hub. This hub incorporates some sort of material that serves the
function of the rubber bushing I'm used to seeing press-fitted into
the center of a prop. Clear as mud?:-)

Merc makes one as do some after market manufacturers. I would recommend the Merc hub kit. I tried an aftermarket and it seemed to have too much play in it. I returned it and got a Merc hub kit and it was a bit tighter. I am running a Tempest Plus 19 pitch on my Yamaha F150 - better hole shot than the Yamaha 21 pitch stainless and same top end.
