Re: Help with G2 150 HO

 

 

The Rebel normally works better than a Viper for a pontoon boat, but testing each type is the way to go. See if you can borrow a smaller pitch Rebel to see how it performs.

 

With the motor all the way down, it may help to move it up a couple of holes and retry. It is trial and error but you can fine tune the boat and motor combination by investing some time tweaking the setup. At speed while trimmed correctly, you want to see the anti-ventilation plate at the surface of the water, not below it.

Bene told to try an RX4 18 pitch. That its made for the G2's. But generally 4 blade props are slower than the 3 blades.

Re: Help with G2 150 HO

The RX4 is specifically designed for the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard and has surprised many people who think that 4-blade props are slow.

 

In almost every case it allows the motor to be mounted higher on the transom and it bites well in the turns. Give it a try and let us know what you think of it.
