    Default "HELLO, I KNOW THIS POST IS SI

    "HELLO, I KNOW THIS POST IS SIMILAR TO THE OTHER POST BUT I HAVE BEEN MEANING TO ASK YOU GUYS ABOUT MY BOATS POWER. IT IS MY FIRST BOAT AND I HAVE BEEN A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED WITH IT. IT HAS AN AQ120B WITH A 270 OUTDRIVE. I AM UNSURE OF THE PROP SIZE/PITCH, BUT IT IS THE ORIGINAL. MY WOT RPMS ARE 4500. THE ENGINE RUNS GREAT AND I HAVE UPGRADED TO THE PETRONIX KIT. I HAVE IT TIMED AT 10BTDC AND IT IS ADVANCING FINE. THE PLUGS ARE A PERFECT BROWN SO I KNOW THE CARB IS TUNED CORRECTLY. I LIKE TO USE IT TO PULL A TUBE WITH 1-2 PEOPLE IN IT AND HAVE ONE PERSON IN THE BOAT. I HAVE ADJUSTED THE TRIM PIN AND IT DIDNT SEEM TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I TRASHED MY PROP AND NEED TO BUY A NEW ONE AND NEED SOME HELP PICKING ONE OUT. I THINK THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO GET SOME POWER TO PULL. PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR OPINIONS. I CAN NOT TRY OUT PROPS SO I WANT TO TRY AND GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME(EVEN THOUGH I UNDERSTAND THAT I MAY BE KIDDING MYSELF.) THANKS"

    Default "Adam, with the RPM your engin

    "Adam, with the RPM your engine was doing at WOT, it seems to me that you had the correct prop size. The old prop probably had the diameter and pitch stamped in the hub, or another number to identify it.

    This thread may help you in selecting a propeller.
