Default '18 Verado 200HP,Tempest Prop,Lund 1975 ProV

My new rig comes with a stainless, 3 blade Tempest 19P prop. I have read mixed reviews on this prop and wonder if I would get better performance (fuel economy, hole shot) with a different prop? This rig & motor is new to me and plan to run & test this spring. Was hoping to get your all's input. Thanks- Dave

Is this the 6 cylinder verado or the 4 cylinder?
If the 4 cylinder you might gain some speed with an enertia either 19 0r 20, rev 4 in a 18 would be awesome holeshot plus better ride and grip especially in rougher water, makes the whole boat ride up and out of the water much better than the tempest. The tempest is a good overall prop and is pretty standard an 200 mercs.
If it is the 6 cylinder it might push a 19 rev 4, but should push a 20 enertia which would give you good speed, slower out of the hole possibly though, and maybe a little squirly on top end.you will most likely lose some top end with a rev 4 but I love those props, had one on my last 2 boats and most likely putting one on my new one.

I meant to ask the dealer last time I was in. I'll find out next week when I pick it up. Thanks for the information on the rev 4. My fishing partner is a rather big boy so I will need all the assistance I can get on the hole shot. Is this a 4 blade prop?

Hopefully you bought the 6 cylinder
Once the warranty is up get the ecu flashed for 320 or so hp. Then spin a 22 or 23 pitch prop
Rev 4 is a 4 blade prop

Some of the Lund guys will likely chime in, but I think the Bravo series, either an FS or an LT, would be the prop of choice for that rig these days. I’d guess a 19 or 20 pitch.

Well, I contacted the dealer and they informed me that the 200 HP Verado is a 4 cylinder. Now, I am a bit bummed that I may have an oversized boat for this motor Anyone else have this same rig that can lift my spirits? I knew this Rig would not give me 6o MPH, I just want a good hole shot with a normal load.

I have that same motor on a 2075 pro v tiller. The 19 Tempest came out of the hole good and top speed by myself was 50. With 2-3 people and 2/3 tank of gas 46-47.
I put a 20p Bravo 1 FS on and lifted the motor one hole. The speed stayed the same but it has a better ride through the waves. Holeshot was not as good as with the tempest. I need to raise it one more hole. I'm thinking of going to a 19p LT for better holeshot and higher rpms, I'm getting 6100 with the 20 FS.
To answer your other question. Yes you can drop the rpm's 500 in 100 increments.
If you do much trolling I would say get a kicker so you don't add all those hours on your expensive big motor.

Good to know- this will help me sleep tonight. I will be testing this rig "as is" before I make any tweeks. I've read a lot of thoughts on my trolling question with the big motor & Smartcraft Gauge. I did beef up on my TM (112 lbs) so this should handle most of my trolling needs for now. If not, the kicker is always an option!

the set up you have now will be around 47-51 mph maybe a little better on perfect conditions depending on load with a decent hole shot. The only way to get better hole shot would be a 19 hi 5 which would probably keep you around close to the same speed as I stated due to the fact you could run good rpms under a heavier load with the hi 5. The rev 4 would be the perfect option if you ask me just from my experiences but you do lose some speed, but not on all boats. To me it seems like the Lunds ride flat and low in the water with a tempest while the rev 4 gets the boat up and riding high from the stern which essentially gives better bow lift at the same time. Do some testing, I have tested many and enjoy doing it, if you can do it cheap, Brainerd props will let you test and will ship for a small fee, but will refund the test money on one if you buy a prop I believe.
Make multiple runs with each prop and document before switching.
Don't overlook a 18 or 19 4 blade powertech prop if you find one to test.
Good luck
