Prop for yamaha 15hp Kicker
Just bought a 2001 15hp Yamaha 4s kicker this summer... Not sure what it has for a prop , looks stock 3 blade.. I like to use the kicker to maneuver the boat to and from close fishing holes as a pose to firing up the big motor. I am pretty happy with the trolling speeds right now , could be a little slower maybe..
Is there a way I can get a little more speed out of the motor pushing a 175 alumacraft trophy pro? When I open it up now rpm is pretty low and I am not sure its making the power that it is capable of... I was doing some research and was thinking of putting a Solas high thrust prop on it.. is this a good idea? should I look at the 5 or 7 pitch? I defintaly do not want to troll faster, same speed or slightly less would be good.
