Props

What do I need to do to my 3 blade stainless prop to increase my RPM 300 from 5700 to 6000 with a light load and full fuel on my 24 foot pontoon with a ETec 150 hp pontoon series?

Re: Props

A knowledgeable prop shop can repitch your blades to acheive a higher rpm or see about trading the prop in on one with a lesser pitch

Re: Props

Is my prop issue pitch or diameter? Pitch raises the RPM when you go smaller?
