Default New prop

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

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 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.

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.

Best wishes.

p.s.
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.

the Raker I have now is about 200 Rpms below my max for a Ficht so would a 18 take my Rpms to high?

Doug, Wondering what Evinrude you were running? From what I have read my max rpm is 5200

It was a 1989 model- which if I recall was crankshaft rated so it would be roughly the same as a prop shaft rated 150. This motor was not a high winder for a 2 stroke- I believe it was 5500 max and I recall getting only around 5100-5200 with the 22. The 20 pitch got me up to the 5500 rpm range which gave much improved performance.
