    Default How can u tell if your prop is to big???

    Not sure but I think my prop may be to big. Don't seem to get on plane fast enough. I have a 17 ft tunnelhull with a 90 hp yamaha pushing it.

    Boat is new to me but prop was wore and had been reconditioned twice so I took prop off of my skiff. Boat is in good condition so I don't think it is waterlogged. Pobably should install tach. Not sure on pitch I will post this afternoon.
