Prop/Pitch/Etc?

10 posts in this topic

Just posted in the used items that I'm looking for a prop for my 1996 75 Merc. I'm looking for something that will give me a higher speed over long distances, not necessarily something that will give a quick hole shot. Any suggestions on pitch, etc?

Thanks!

Yes we need your WOT rpms. 4 stroke or Classic? Also whats the OEM part number and size and pitch of the prop you have now. Are you looking for aluminum or stainless steel?

MJ,

We're going to need some more info... like what pitch prop are you running now, and what are you getting for RPM at WOT? Also, since you're looking for more speed than holeshot, how many people and how much gear do you run with?

Great questions. I'll have to get back to you tomorrow on that.

Thanks!

It currently has a 3 blade stainless steel 16 pitch prop on it, but it's been repaired a couple of times and is banged up pretty good already. I would consider another stainless to have. I looked at the number last night on the prop, thought about writing it down, but didn't. I'm at work right now, then off to Big Stone. I'll have to get it Sunday night or Monday sometime. I'll try to include more details later.

Typically I have two batteries, maximum of 26 gallons of fuel, 1 or 2 other people with me, lots of tackle and rods, two anchors.

By the way, it's a 3 cylinder 2 stroke with oil injection.

Also, for curiosity's sake, what model and size is your boat?

Thanks...

The Mercury web site has a page that allows you to plug in the boat and motor you have and the type of performance you are looking for in your rig. It will give you one or more choices. I did it for my boat and went to the dealer, and they agreed with what I had found on that site. Mercurymarine.com

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
