Can anyone owning a 1989 20' outrage with a 150 hp motor tell me what size prop they are running?
Thank You
John

What are you running now and what is your WOT rpm?

I run 4800 with a 13 3/4 x 18. went to a 15 1/4 x 15 and turn 5000. Performance with 15 1/4 is not good with a full load in boat.

Were you always running these rpm's or did they drop, just get the boat? Reason being the frst prop sounds about right. I would try a 14 or 14 1/4x 15. The other 15 you tried has too big a diameter. You should be up around 5500. I am just worried that you have other issues than a prop. Sometimes people will stick any prop on a boat to sell it, etc. Anyody out there have this combo or close. What would a 20' outrage run?

I just bought the boat and felt the rpm's where not high enought at 4800. I am going to do a compression test even thought the engine sounds and runs great.
Thank You
I will keep you posted.
