Mercury 125hp Prop ?

3 posts in this topic

I just purchased a 2003 Lund Mr.Pike 1800, with a 125 hp Mercury 2-stroke motor. First can I have some opinions on the motor? Secondly could I have some recommendations on which prop to use? Stainless Steel, Aluminum, what pitch, and questimate of top speed? I havn't had a chance to gt it on the water yet.

Thanks !!

This would be a good question for experts out there on the HSOforum iboats.com that is a wwww. site. They have some real good experienced people who frequent it and give good solutions to problems.

Joe if you have questions concerning how to prop your boat you should by all means ask your dealer, they are the best source for info on pitch, speed etc. Also any good dealer will let you buy a prop and if it is not just right let you exchange it for another, provided it is returned undamaged. Your dealer would like nothing better than for you to be completly satisfied with your purchase. If you are a happy customer you will purchase your next boat from them and send your freinds to them also. And as far as alum vs. stainless, a stainless prop will outlast an alum prop by 10 to 1.

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
