if you are running a 2 stroke 15 omc motor you night want to try swinging a 9.25X11 wheel what a difference this made bow down and more speed most omc had 10 inch wheels from factory

Thats great you picked up some speed. I had mine doing 17mph before my stainless steel prop got mangled. Two-stroke outboards turn much higher RPM's than 4-strokes do, so a higher pitched prop can increase speed. Whereas in my case, I had to go from a 10" pitch all the way down to a 7" to get top speed!! Whatever works. The trouble with mine is that I can't find 3-blade props in 7" pitch in Aluminum. So I kinda have to stick with the Solas 7" SS prop, just have to be careful.

I would drop down from that 14 to an 11 pitch for sure that 14 pitch has to be limiting your rpm's on your sneakbox. I bet if you drop down you will get more top end. How fast does your eastury go now

Farrukh I agree with Chris you may be under RPM and that is not good for the motor

The Estuary has tremendous rocker, which really limits the speed. But let me tell you, yesterday we had to cross a body of water with 3-4 swells being wind driven...I wouldn't trade the Estuary for any other sneakbox. Talk about being safe...wow!

What motor are you running Farrukh?

Chris i'm not 100% but its slow, i'm guessing 8-9 mph with all the weight. Should i be looking for a Yammy prop or ???

I don't think you need a yammy prop just one that will fit your motor that is 9.25X11. You should be getting way more speed then that. At least 12 to 14mph if not a bit more. Check online and find a prop that will fit your motor. I think you will see a big difference. Good luck.

TDB prop

Post  Mike B on Tue Jan 24, 2012 12:44 am

Hey Jimmy,

Have someone with some knowledge about powering a TDB? You know my boat. The transome was redone to accommodate a long shaft. I have no idea what the pitch of the prop is. It's a Johnson 25 hp long shaft. Around a 1999 year of manufacture I believe. The motor dogs real bad and it's almost impossible to get on plane even in not so bad chop.

You need a smaller pitch prop. It may say the size and pitch on the prop itself. Its is probably an 11 or 12 pitch. Try a 9. Some places will let you try out different props to find the right one

Mike take the prop off the size is stamped on the inside near the shaft. only way to get the right prop on is to know how many RPM's the motor redlines at hook up a tach and experiment the correct pitch. The correct prop will top out near the redline. Any good shop will loan you the tach and will let you test different props

thanks for the info

Post  Mike B on Tue Jan 24, 2012 1:13 am

Thanks guys. My last boat had an issue with the motor sitting too high on the transome so that was an easy fix. This will take a bit more.

Larry, are there any shops that you would recommend in our neck of the woods?
