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.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
