what prop for a 25hp mariner

3 posts in this topic

I have an 88 or 89 25 hp mariner. The prop on it is shredded after 20 years of heavy river use. Im looking for some suggestions on what size and pitch to get, or any other suggestions as what to look for in a prop. The boat is a 16 foot v hull alumacraft. Thanks

Also, the prop I currently have on it is REALLY chewed up, will I damage the motor by using this prop, Im sure its not perfectly balanced right now. (hit a wingdam late last fall, getting the boat ready to go for summer).

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

First off, did the prop that you had on the motor before perform to your satisfaction? If so, there's no reason to make any changes.

I'd talk to Soderblooms and see what they'd recommend for a new prop.

With respect to running it the way it is.. that's kind of a subjective thing. If it's got a couple of nicks, missing chips you're ok. If you're missing more than 1/4 of a blade I'd advise against it.

I have an 89 45hp Mariner that I recently purchased a new prop for. I had a steel one but opted for the aluminum since I run rivers and some pretty shallow areas. Now I keep the steel one in the boat incase shtuff hits the fan....Give Soderblooms a call. Great company to deal with.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
