Re: 255 CONQUEST Twin 200-HP

My plan is to first get a set of three-bladed propellers the dealer is recommending. Then in Spring 2021 I will get a set of four-bladed propeller for use when the boat is loaded heavily [for angling in the ocean].

Re: 255 CONQUEST Twin 200-HP

I think you have answered your own question. Actually a guy on The Hull truth answered my question [December 1, 2020], but he had only owned the [255 CONQUEST for] a few weeks. He didn’t have anything to compare the 16 x 21.5 propellers against, and he didn’t have any data like maximum engine speed...

Re: Whaler 255 conquest twin Suzuki 200’s prop?

255 CONQUEST Twin 200-HP

I’m repowering my 2002 255 CONQUEST with new twin SUZUKI 200-HP engines. I fish out here in the Pacific Northwest.
