I have a Evinrude E-Tec 60HP 2012 with a propeller Rouge 13.25x15". The hole shot is “about” perfect(is a heavy stern boat), the WOT RPM is about 5700, the MPH is about 31MPH, but now the engine has 30hr and the WOT RMP change to 6000, everything in the boat is the same. The readings if from my Lowrance and analog tach. I did change to Rouge 13"X17" but the Hole Shot is not good.
Shut I try the Viper 17"?
My boat is a Hobie Power Skiff 15’, here the sea is rough and need grip. Thanks for all the help..

Your engine is to run as close to 6000rpm's with out going over that rpm. You should try different props but to know which one is the best for your boat and setup is to try them. You could also look online at evinrude.com under Research tools and look at the performance reports there.
