  • Prop Advice

    Thanks for your advice in advance!!

    I would like to get some input on my prop/engine performance setup and would I gain much from replacing prop. I'm running a 2019 Mercury 90 4 stroke with 2.07:1 lower unit. The prop is a Solas 1431-130-19 which came on motor from dealer. Motor is on a Xtreme 1760 aluminum boat. The numbers are 39mph with 5000 WOT. MPH is from Lowrance unit. Is 5000 WOT in the suggested WOT range on this motor?? Thanks again.

    RPM range for that motor is 5000 to 6000.
    dropping to a 16 pitch, you'd accelerate a lot stronger and still get about the same top end speed, so there would be no downside to dropping in pitch.
    I'd suggest a Powertech NRS3 in 16 pitch. They cost $329 from me.

        Could try a 17 pitch PTR3 if the goal is top end, it gives pretty good bowlift, and might be a couple mph faster.
