| | Prop for Yamaha F115
I recently repowered my boat from an F90 to an F115. I was running a 13x17 black SS 3-blade prop on the F90 with good performance (WOT @ 6,000 rpms, good holeshot, etc). I kept the same prop when I repowered, but the F115 would over-rev the 13x17 easily. I just tried out my buddy's 13.5x19 SS prop (ported), but do not like the performance. With the 13.5x19, WOT is around 5,500-5,600 rpms...holeshot is not good at all. With a heavy load, it will take 6-8 seconds to plane. I will say that mid-range performance is very good with this bigger prop.
Based on a little research, I am interested in the 13.25" x 18" Yamaha Performance 3-blade prop (MAR-GYT3B-V4-18). Do you think this prop would be a good fit? If so, I'd like to get a quote if possible.
Thanks for the help!
