I bought a 170 DC and the previous owner put a new stainless steel prop with a pitch that escapes me as I write this. However, here is the issue:

On my maiden voyage, I notice I was not getting 4400 rpm’s at full throttle. I got the motor serviced and it needed it bad! I took her out again and only was able to get her to 4500 rpm’s. My mechanic indicates that the prop is the wrong pitch.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to a new prop and what size/pitch?

Thanks!

Bob
