Default SS Prop for Merc 150 4 stroke Comp. 205

Looking for info on a SS prop for my Merc 150 4stroke. It is on a Competitor 205 tiller. I have a 17 pitch 3 blade blackmax on it now. I like the prop on it. I just want a SS. I have heard its not as easy as just picking up a 3 blade 17 pitch prop.

General rule is going up two pitch’s with stainless steel. That can very of course. You would still need to test for proper rpm range. I use a 19 pitch tempest plus on my merc 150 that is on a 19 foot wheel boat. You will like a high end stainless prop. Better performance then the black max prop.

I liked the 19p Tempest Plus on my previous boat with the 150 Merc 4S. Solid plugs. Night and day difference between the black max and the SS. Mine came with a 19p Black Max though.

I have a 19P Tempest Plus on my 2010 Pro Guide (which is 20' like yours but not sure what your hull is like). With a 150 Verado I only turned it 5800 RPM. For my motor that was too low, max RPM for motor is 6400. Yours might be more like 6000, not sure. If that's right, 5800 would be about right. I like the Tempest Plus a lot,On my boat it runs it flat and I can't get front end to porpoise if I try. I also have a 19P Enertia, but I don;t like that one as much.
