Everything is best with the cavitation plate at the correct height - motor height, prop, weight ratio, attitude all contributing factors.

Did you run the motor break in correctly, a new stiff motor will take some time....

I have a 2013 1900 TYEE with the 200L4 mine does 50 MPH with a 19 pitch tempest plus prop and about 47 MPH with a 17 pitch revolution 4 prop
sounds like you need a stainless prop.

Mr. Yukon
From another posting:

https://www.walleyecentral.com/forum...d.php?t=225185

Try the 19 pitch Tempest plus prop and see how it goes.

IMHO, make sure you have your engine mounting height correct....before messing around too much with props. I have a 2017 1900 Tyee....but I have the L6 200 Pro. My engine was mounted at the Lund factory and is too low ( it's even with the bottom of the boat.) I'm getting 5800 rpm trimmed with a very light load. Those specs are with running a 19" pitch Tempest Plus. My target rpm is 6100-6200 with the light load and same prop. I have since had the motor raised two holes, the highest mounting position I can achieve. I'm hoping to see a portion of the cav plate. Presently I see nothing in terms of the cav plate or the plate above.


Here's a nice thread from the Verado Owners club that includes a picture of a boat running triple Verado's set up by Mercury:

I've followed the advice from the above thread on my previous boat. It made a lot of difference for my ability to fine tune with a prop.

This is a photo of the motor, trimmed up......factory mounting position. I was wrong to say the upper splash plate was under water......it is above water but gets splashed a fair amount.

Senderofan:
Your motor is still too low. You should be seeing the rear of the cavitation plate with it trimmed up usually through a spray of water. Can only see that top level plate as you state. If you are already at the top hole possible, the only choice would be a jack plate.

Thanks for the information...I really appreciate it. The picture is what the engine looked like as it was mounted from the factory. I had it raised two holes ( It's the highest I can have it raised without adding a jackplate.) Unfortunately for me, I had the engine raised when the boat was in for winterization. So....I have to wait until next season to get a new picture and data.

I think it's important for folks to check their mounting height before getting too deep into buying props. I have a feeling most engines are mounted pretty low.....but I suppose that way the boat never blows out in a corner or in big waves.

Thanks again.
