    Default 18 HP 1970 Fastwin pushing 14 foot Tin boat

    My prop is a little banged up, so looking for a new one. Is their an ideal prop for this combo in your opinion? The boat will usually have no more than two people in it.

    What is the pitch on the prop you have? Ideally you want to achieve proper WOT rpm with the boat loaded.

    A 10 pitch should be good for a 14ft skiff.
    It takes a nickle to go first class!
    If it aint broke dont fix it!!

    Not sure what the standard pitch is. I will have a look at the motor over the weekend. Is there usually a number written on the prop? I believe it to be the original one the motor came with.

    There should be a part number it is either 9 or 10 inch pitch I am pretty sure.

    If it is a stock prop it should be marked on the flat part under the cone.
