Default Yamaha 50hp 4 Stroke Prop Options

Hello THT,

I am wondering what the best performing prop for my yamaha 50 4 stroke would be. i would like to increase speed and a better hole shot. let me know what your experiences are or have any tips! It currently has a cheap aluminum prop. Thanks

Well, as always, when requesting propeller advice the very basic information is helpful.

- Exactly what motor do you have? Which Yamaha 50 HP four stroke is it? Model? Year?

- Exactly what propeller are you using now. Brand? Model? Pitch?

- What is the boat’s top speed now, with the current prop, measured by GPS?

- What is the motor’s WOT engine speed (RPM)?

- What boat is this motor on, and what are your performance goals?

Search and read as much as possible on here. It sounds like you’re just starting out. As Tom Clark stated, we will need a lot more information to even give a recommendation, and even then you’ll have to dial it in and fine tune it.

This is a link to the thread showing my trials with this issue. Tom was very helpful there and I’ll use this thread to thank him for his advice.
