    Straight talk about props!

    If you new to boating than you might not know the lake that you will be boating on vary well. I would suggest staying with an aluminum prop because they are more forgiving if you hit something. Aluminum props are pritty cheap compared to replacing the lower unit.

    Which Prop?

    I have a 2010 SLi 24 2 25" tubes with a 115 hp Yamaha. Currently the prop is a 13.5x15p. The WOT RPM is 5200-5300 which seems low. Is there a prop that would work better? Yamaha performance bulliton used a 14x13p prop but the boat was a tri toon. Any suggestions?
