Had a new Yam 100 4 stroke installed and the dealer put a 17 pitch stiletto stainless prop. Great hole shot and boat seems to top out at 42 to 44mph at 6000 rpm, it hits the rpms easily, maybe a litte more than 6000. Has anyone had any experience with a 19 inch pitch, will it take it?

Just out of curiosity, what year Montauk, what size was old engine ( if applicable ) and how does the boat sit in the water with the extra weight.

Thanks,

Ron

Ask the dealer to try it. If you are just at 6000 or 6100, try a double cup. It will bring you down about 200rpms and make your prop more like an 18".

Boat is a 1985 and the engine was a 1985 johnson 90. I bought the boat and ordered the engine after running the boat once. The boat may sit a little lower in stern, but not much. I also relocated battery to the console to get more weight forward.

I have the same question. We use the Montauk primarily in Tahoe & we have a 13X19 Alum prop & it achieves 6000rpm easily and will do 40. I am told that the 13 1/4 X 17 Stiletto would be equivilent?
