Hi--got a problem. Maybe someone has had the same--What prop for Honda 90?
Just repowered from a 90 Evinrude--prop 13 1/4 x 17. Good performance at 4600 or so aroung 37 mph--non GPS.
The prop that came on my Honda--13 X 14 is way too flat--I turn 6300 --GPS speed 31mph.
Should I go to a 14 X 16 or stick with the 13 and go to a 17 pitch??
I hope to get around 42 mph at 6000 rpm. My use is general--fishing and sport--some sking.

I don't see your exact boat listed for the 90HP but maybe some other boat listed is similar. I hope this helps:

Thanks for reminder---I went back and checked again and charted results based on weight and length--closest I could come.
I am thinking of a 13 1/4 x 19 and if I don't like it or it is too much over 6000 then I'll spring for a change of pitch.
Next project will be to mod the controller for smoother operation.
