Re: Super Sport 15 Re-power 60-HP

Owners with the classic 15 Super Sport with a Mercury 60 FourStroke with the 1.83 lower unit, the recommended prop includes:

13 3/8 x 12 Vengeance

The engine should be mounted 1 hole up meaning the top engine bolts are in the second hole down from the top.

Re: Montauk 17 with 115-HP 25-inch-shaft

Ed--welcome back. Here is a simple answer for the propeller: For the Montauk 17 with the classic Yamaha 115 2-stroke the ideal prop is the 13x19 Yamaha Painted Stainless Steel. For mounting, you want to make sure the anti-ventilation plate-- just above the propeller--is 1-1/2 to 2-inches above the b...

While there are a few companies that will insure a boat with horsepower above the capacity plate, this candidate is excessive.

Irrespective of whether or not it has a re-enforced transom, there is no practical reason to have this much weight on the transom. The factory will not install engines that exceed the capacity plate. A Guardian 25 could come with a "reinforced" transom. I would be highly concerned of the l...
