I'm looking for suggestions on a new prop for my 90 Etec which is pushing a Mako Frenzy 500. At the moment it has an OMC SST 13 7/8" diameter prop with 17" pitch. When there's bugger all weight in the boat the prop is OK but at normal fishing weight I think it is over propped. With just me and bugger all gear on board I can get up to around 4,800RPM/38kts at WOT. A normal day's fishing involves 2 POB, 2x 120AH AGM batteries and 80lb Minn Kota, 90L live well, 2 eskies etc etc and with this it drops about 300rpm and 5kts. I can drop back to a 15" pitch in the same diameter prop but wondering if anyone has any recommendations that I could look at. Ideally I'd like to be close to 5,500rpm at WOT with no weight on board.

Go the sst 15 it will bring the revs up. I had the same problem with a 5.5 galeforce
