    Default YF 29 prop question

    I am re-powering my 29 with yami 300's and would appreciate any feedback on recommended props. I had verado 275's with 23 pitch on before, and when loaded, it could be hell to get out the hole, esp in rough seas. I have been told 21 pitch would make a huge difference. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Take it easy...need more info. Lightly loaded What rpm were u turning wot without over trimming? Also with light to moderate load what was ur fuel burn @ 4000 rpm? I assume u were running mirage plus 23p 3 blades on the old style merc gear case w 1.85:1 gears

    That is correct. Mirage plus 3 blade 23p. If I remember correctly rpm's at full throttle was around 5700. At 4000 rpm light I was getting around 1.2 to 1.3 mpg. When fully loaded it would struggle significantly to get on step.
