    I have an '88 model 75hp mariner 3 cyl and am in need of a prop. Can somebody make reccomendation for a good affordable aluminum prop? Also need suggestions on prop size and a place to order one.

    Thanks

    A little more info will help. Like size of boat alum. or fiber glass. Flat bottom chined or ribbed. possible weight. That 15 pitch on e-bay is what I run on my toon and its 24 feet long and stays well within max range Now If I were to take it off anf put the motor and all on my 17 foot ribbed bottom boat it would turn well above the max RPM's. Do you see what I am getting at here. You also need a tach to see if any prop is performing right.

    The boat is a 17' G3 aluminum bass boat, mod v with a ribbed bottom, not exactly sure on the weight. What would be a good prop pitch for this boat/motor?

    Thanks
