I agree with an 18 pitch- years back I ran a similar rig which weighed in with 300 lbs less hull weight than a 692 and with a 175 Evinrude I could swing only a 20 Raker. I tried a 22 and it ran barely in the middle of the rpm range with just me in the boat, empty live wells, no kicker, minimum gear.
Doug, Wondering what Evinrude you were running? From what I have read my max rpm is 5200

For your situation I would suggest an 18 pitch raker.
By dropping the pitch of the prop by 4 inches you will really improve your hole shot and still give reasonable top end.
Keep an eye on the tach - when running alone or with a very light load. You may need to throttle back a bit to keep from over revving the motor. But, the 18 pitch should give you a wonderful hole shot.
If the prop comes with vents, I would initially run the prop with all of the holes in the prop fully plugged.
Just checked the net, and came up with this one:
Another one - with slight corrosion on the blades, but no apparent damage to the prop.
This 4-bladed prop - MIGHT be another possibility.

|bubba800||I'd drop to a 19P and test. You just added the weight of another good sized person. When I had a 150 I ran a DAH tuned 18P and it was an animal at holeshot.|

I have a 99 Ranger 692 with a Evinrude Ficht 150, I upgraded 3 batteries from 27 to 31 and added a kicker now I can’t hardly get out of the hole with two guys and full load, running a 14.5 by 22 raker, I know a guy that has a 13.5 by 23 renegade bass, what’s your guys thoughts
