    bayliner 245 prop selection

    Hi all i have a bayliner with a mercury alph gen 2. Motor = mercury 5.0 carb 220 horsepower. I have a 15 inch diameter with a 16pitch 4 blade prop. Anyone can tell me would a 14-1/4 inch diameter 17pitch prop 5 blade work with my setup.

    What is your current WOT? Increasing pitch and adding a blade will bring it down several hundred rpm. If you are not getting 4400-4800 your going the wrong way.

        Your already at the sweet spot, I think increasing pitch and adding a blade will be too much. Doing one or the other should not decrease the WOT too much and give better low end performance.
