  • Need to prop a 20 foot Tri-log pontoon with a 2017 Merc 150 4-stroke

    I have a customer with a Mercury 2017 150XL 4 Stroke 2B452526 on a 17 Apex Qwest Tri-log Pontoon Model LS 820 that wants a Stainless prop for more performance. . He currently has a Nemesis ALuminum Prop 14x14. I was thinking Enertia 15 x 15. Any ideas?

    Sounds like a good place to start.
    I see Suzuki topped out at 42 MPH with a light load. http://www.boatingworld.com/boat-tes...-ls-820-lanai/
    going off those numbers a 15 Enertia would probably be a good place to start.

    How does it run with the Nemesis ?

      Checked with customer he could not remember the rpm but remembered around 40 mph will have him test this spring when we have water instead of ice and get good data.

        I would think with a aluminum 14 pitch, mid 30's would have been the best he'd ever see.

        but I agree with you, wait till you get actual GPS speed numbers from the 14 pitch, so you have a baseline of what your trying to improve on.
