Changed props today
i changed props on my fd226/yamaha vf200 sho today. Put on a mercury enertia 14.2 x 18 3 blade and raised my jackplate 1" from bottom. Motor is mounted on the #2 holes. Air temp 76, water temp 65, engine rpm 5900, gps speed 50.6with 30 gallons of fuel Old prop was a solas 14.25 x 17 4 blade. Under same conditions engine turned 5500 rpm and 45.3 gps. With 15 gallons of fuel Big improvement. I was trying for 55 mph but I just don't think it is possible, but I may be wrong
