  1. Iā€™m new to the forums but been reading a lot of good information but thought I might throw my situation out there and see what you guys had to say I recently bought a new 21ā€™ Thunderjet Luxor OB OS (aluminum hard top fishing boat) with a new F200 Yamaha Outboard which has a recommended WOT of 5000-6000 rpms. I bought it at sea level and brought it up to 6500 ft. elevation (elevation sucks). So I have playing with props. I am currently running an aluminum 13p x 16ā€ prop getting the motor broke in. I installed trim tabs to help plain out. It runs at 5800 rpm at 34 mph at WOT. I would l

    Proper Prop

    I want to replace my current aluminum factory Mercury propeller with a stainless propeller. I am not looking to upgrade or change performance because I am happy with the current time to plane. If anything I would select more top speed over hole shot. Here is my boat's configuration: 2004 Chaparral 215 SSi Mercury 5.0L with Alpha 1 Gen 2 (320 hours) 1.62 Gear Ratio Current Prop: 14.25 x 21P Can anyone please recommend a suitable replacement Stainless Steel Propeller? I tried to use Mercury's Prop Selector site, but it recommends Diameters and Pi
  3. Hey folks - during the latter part of the summer I am seeing the caulking oozing out from between every grab rail and grab handle on my '12 246. It is becoming discolored (dingy, really) and you can push it with your finger back up to the contact joint between the the gelcoat and the edge of the handle or rail. Prior to this oozing, I was unaware that there was any compound whatsoever at these joints so it must be coming from the back side of the gunnel/transom where the fastening hardware resides. It's not a large volume of caulk - mainly just a small bead, but it is coming from EVERY connect
  4. I have a 2008 190 SSI with a 4.3 220hp Volvo Penta, with a 4 blade 19" 14.25" prop. I want to increase the low end performance to get on plane easier and quicker. Would changing the prop to a 17" (or even lower) SIGNIFICANTLY improve the low end performance. I'm OK loosing some top end performance. With 4 or 5 adults on the boat, it is hard to get on plane (even with 2 of them in the bow). Would this create any issues or overload the engine? Would a stainless prop make much difference. Any suggestions or experiences from others who have the same boat?
