PROP NUMBERS TO SIZE

6 posts in this topic

I have a 2004 Lund Explorer with a tiller 90 Yamaha on it. The prop that came with the boat has been getting chewed up by the low water levels this summer. I decided to look for a new one and looked for the size numbers on the prop. I came up with this number which I assume is a parts number. 854360A4P16MERCURY The place where I bought the boat (which will remain nameless) has excelled in NO service whatsoever, so I expected and got no help from them. Does anyone have any idea what size prop this is, or should be, or able to translate the mercury parts number.

Thanks a lot in advance.

The one you mentioned is a 16pitch prop, not sure of diameter since part number doesn't show up.

I have a 16-ft Sylvan with a 90Hp Merc and usually run a 19 pitch prop.

That would probably be too big for your engine because the 90 Merc runs a lower ratio in the gearcase than the Yamaha. On your engine, a 16 or 17 pitch probably runs about the same as a 19 pitch on mine - 40 MPH, give or take a couple depending on conditions.

Prop Size and Pitch are 100% percent dependent on boat, weight, motor HP, hull type, etc. Just because one prop works well for someone on one boat does not mean it is going to perform similarily on another.

If you're looking to tweak your setup a little bit you'll need to provide what RPM's you are turning at Wide Open Throttle (WOT) when trimmed out and running at optimum conditions. Then it will be a little easier to give a reccomendation.

For more information on props check out the Prop Basics thread in the open water forum.

      Anyone been out lately? I normally wait until the leaves start dropping but am getting the itch to get out pretty bad.

      Prices a little high there too....   Come on down to the switch or the crescent.  

      Didn't Bayview try the upscale dining thing a few years ago?

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

      Yep it is the 3 S's - I just don't think a lot of people are going to be grouse hunting with a shovel - but not a bad idea.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
