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.

    • Here ya go. Freeking cell phones!  He's a dandy!
    • OK, I will defer to you since you know.  I figured since your picture was ignored that somehow that wasn't the right one.   So I took a whack at it.    Maybe next time.....
    • Returning to "crooked Hillary"   saw this on CNN site...    
    • Go straight to a farmer. 56 pounds per bushel of corn. Under $3 per bushel right now.  
    • Beautiful, congratulations archerysniper. 
    • I am not sure if it is purely higher deer numbers.  But we certainly have higher hunter density per deer.   Add on top of that, we have a less selective tradition in Minnesota.  Hunters here are less likely to pass small bucks than many other states.  Right or wrong I personally don't care what others chose to shoot it Thier hunt. I too, felt the same way as you about being able to shot one with each license.  Overtime I came to change my mind, I just don't believe it would be wise.
    • Not sure why it's upside down,if I have time I will play with it tomorrow. 
    • This Jim?  Labrador Tea and wintergreen berry below.
    • I can't believe any one of these people were baiting but Fleet in Brainerd must have sold 3 pallets worth just today.  I'm sure there just doing it to help the herd get fat before the winter..
    • Iv'e patterned alot of different shells , cut them apart ect. I shoot an extended choke tube ALL the time, it's either a miss or dead, and the biggest thing is shoot them within 35 yards, in the decoys, let the fringe and passing birds go and it won't matter what shell your shooting, I shoot 2's all the time for ducks and geese, 3's if only ducks. I have found that the dimpled and imperfect shot still kills them dead if you shoot a tight choke and within 35 yards. Blindside patterend really good out of my gun with a Drake Killer choke tube and number 3's , killed geese really dead but not worth the money if your letting the birds get where they should be when calling the shot. I like the challenge of getting them feet down and seeing there rear end pucker when the blind doors open.
