I changed the kicker on my outrage 17 II from merc 6 hp 4st to the new merc 8 hp 4 st 2 cylinders. on the 6 hp I've changed the original prop to high thrust, and it pushed the boat to max 5 MPH. what is the right prop to install to the new motor to have good preformance for trolling? thanks asaf.

High thrust prop is the only way to go and with the 8hp you might get 5.5mph.

should i expect only 0.5 mph differance from an engine that has double displacement, one more cylinder and a lower gear ratio?
