Was it always 3000 rpm tops?

 

Study the above manual and view the videos.  If you still have questions, please provide all the boat, motor, rpm, speed, etc. information that is needed to determine a propeller starting point.  Working with a helpful dealer is your best bet if possible.

Re: Prop size etc

Many thanks for that info , I have recently purchased this boat it's a quicksilver pilot house 580 I think was used on loch Lomond .It has only ever revved to 3000 but when it goes on plane the revs rise with speed I am told the engine should rev to 5.800 rpm with four on board at the weekend it wouldn't plane
