Prop suggestions

I bought a new warrior V193 with G2 200 with a 20 pitch rebel. My first test run was 43 mph WOT at 5500 rpm with total weight 3500 lbs including 3 people and gear. My elevation at the lakes I fish at are between 3200-3500 feet. Average temperature around 75-80 In the summer. Would I benifit by going to a RX4 20 pitch or just go down to 19 pitch rebel.

5500 rpm at that elevation is not bad, and within the engine parameters.  Propping is often trial and error so switching to an RX4 may take either an 18 or a 20"

 

Because of the gearcase design, the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines can be mounted on the transom higher than other makes, and will give better speeds and economy.  If you cannot see the top of your antii-ventilation plate while on plane, it may help to move the motor up one or two holes at a time and retest.

Re: Prop suggestions

My friend told me he checked the antii-ventilation plate and it was above the water while on plane. My dealership doesn’t keep props on hand to test and tune. They only have props that come on new boats from the factory. There are a Ranger dealer not warrior. Should I just go with a Rebel 19 pitch?

Re: Prop suggestions

Perhaps talking to Warrior may help if they tested various props on your same rig
