Using the options to the left hand side to determine what type of propeller guide you want to go through. In a couple short questions, we will have our suggestions listed for you.
Find All propellers that fit my engine
You will need to know your engine manufacture, model or horsepower to determine which propellers will fit your boat. Once listed, you can then determine the size you are looking for. Once you provide the specifications on your engine, we will display all of the propellers that fit your engine. You will then be able to filter based on diameter, pitch, material, # of blades, etc.
Match my current propeller to what is available (OEM)
If you have the current model number of your existing propeller, the prop guide will display all available propeller matches that we carry.
Recommend propeller for my boat
If you know your engine specifications, and the size and speed of your boat, we can make a basic estimation of what propeller size would be needed. Please note however that in most cases you will want a full propeller sizing done if you know nothing about the existing size of the propeller.
Get within suggested RPM range at full throttle
If you know your engine specifications and your current RPM at full throttle, we can determine if you are under or over pitched. Having the right size propeller that produces the recommended RPMs at full throttle will give you the best efficiency and speed.
Go from a 3 blade to 4 blade
If you want to gain great fuel efficiency, go to a four blade. If you know your size currently, we can suggest the right 4 blade.
