Re: Correct Propeller and mounting height

Wow, 150-HP is not a lot of power for a 2,500-lbs hull. The minimum recommended power for the 1999 OUTRAGE 21 is 135-HP. I would change to a propeller with less diameter and less pitch to spin up the engine to 6,000-RPM. With a gear ratio of 2.5:1 , engine speed of 6,000-RPM and a target boat speed ...
