Prop question..

5 posts in this topic

I looked at the prop on my boat, it has a 13 3/4 x 15 prop. I believe the 15 is the pitch? Does that seem right or kind of low? It's on a 115 evinrude pushing a 1750 sport fish, both year 2000. I havnt had the boat in the water and bought it used from a dealer. The dealer said if the RPM's were not in the 5500 range, to let them know and they'd change the prop. Either way, any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

15 is the pitch. It's tough to say without running it, but that seems about right. We've got a 115 Johnson on an Alumacraft that's a bit smaller than your boat with a 13 1/4 x 17 and it runs right at 5500.

See how she does. Your standard choices range from 13 3/4x15 to 13x21. So it may be 15 pitch but its 13 3/4 diameter also. Then theres cupped props. Whats the prop number, J1-15P or J1-15SP(cupped).

The only other number I saw on it was 391198.

OK thats an OEM #, I listed a replacement. Anyway you have a cupped prop. When you get it on the water note your RPMs at WOT. Do that with an average load in the boat. (gear, gas and passengers). Post the results or better yet talk with Jay at Soderbloom he'll get you setup.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
