Re: is my boat set up right ????????

Best advice is to find out which prop you have and find the safe rpm limit. Then play with it until you find what you like. Don't exceed the limit rpm from the prop manufacturer though. Take pitch out will increase rpm and adding pitch drops rpm. I would assume you have an R blade which has a safe ...

Re: is my boat set up right ????????

Took it out this weekend and yes for sure its only turning 4300 rpm on the motor the props are set on the #2 setting. That is if they are set right the #2 marks on the blades are lined up with the center of the hub where the front and back 1/2 come together.

I guess I should have asked if it is a wood prop. If it is a wood prop you have what you have and it would be the wrong prop for that motor. I do not know how to read the pitch on a wood prop but they are not adjustable and you would need a different prop. no they are carbon fiber props not wood. s...

Re: is my boat set up right ????????

Is 4200 RPM wide open throttle? Which 2 blade sensenich propeller do you have? A car engine should turn 5000 RPM or more. If 4200 RPM is wide open your blades need to be pitched differently. Let us know where you are located and maybe someone close to you can help get the blades pitched properly. t...
