3-Blade vs. 4-Blade Johnson Propellers.    
3-Blades
3-blade Johnson props are great on most boats as they offer good all around performance, better efficiency, and can achieve higher speeds. Switching from 4 to 3-blades generally requires a 1" pitch increase.
3-Blade vs. 4-Blade
4-Blades
4-blade Johnson props work well with bass, pontoon & high performance boats as they provide better acceleration, keep a boat on plane with fewer RPM's, and produce less vibration at high speeds. Switching from 3 to 4-blades generally requires a 1" pitch decrease.

Aluminum vs. Stainless Steel Johnson Propellers.    
Aluminum
Aluminum Johnson props are a great choice for small and medium sized boats. They are inexpensive and under normal conditions can last for many years. When running your boat in an area where striking the bottom is likely, aluminum blades can flex, helping prevent damage to your engine.
Aluminum vs. Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel
Stainless steel Johnson props are ideal for large or heavy boats and boats running in saltwater. Although more expensive than aluminum, stainless steel Johnson props are more durable and will last longer. When running your boat at speeds over 50 mph, stainless Johnson props will perform better than aluminum.

Differences in Propeller Diameter.    
Diameter is the width of the circle that the Johnson prop would make when rotating.

Prop diameter does not affect the fit of the prop on a boat.

The diameter of your Johnson prop can vary by up to 1/2" with no discernable change in performance.

Caution: Before increasing the diameter of your Johnson prop, make sure there will be enough clearance between the blades and cavitation plate or anode on your engine.

Purchase Options for Johnson Boat Propellers

Johnson boat propellers are available in both aluminum and stainless steel varieties.  One of the first decisions any boating enthusiast must make when considering propellers is this very issue – choice of metal.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Aluminum

Aluminum is generally considered to be an “all purpose” metal appropriate for a wide variety of recreational uses.  This is because it is less expensive than stainless steel.  Johnson propellers that use aluminum are, therefore, more affordable for the average boater.

Although aluminum is indeed less strong per cubic inch than stainless steel, it is fully strong enough for most common boating uses.  Pleasure crafts generally come equipped from the factory with aluminum propellers already installed.  As long as a boater is careful to check that the propeller is from a reputable company and meets quality standards, it will be able to live up to the demands commonly placed on it during family fishing trips and other casual outings.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel, on the other hand, is a much stronger metal than aluminum.  This not only makes it more durable and long-lasting, but it also means that stainless steel can both survive more abuse and remain reliable under more trying circumstances.

High-end boating is the kind of situation where stainless steel Johnson Props are preferable.  This is because a stainless steel propeller will allow boating enthusiasts to accelerate much faster and will also permit higher top speeds.

The major disadvantage of stainless steel, however, is that it is a more expensive option than aluminum.

All about propellers for Johnson outboard engines

The Johnson outboard engine is one of the best-known brands of outboard motor, and has been loved by boat enthusiasts for over a century. In 1936, Johnson merged with Evinrude, the most famous name in outboard motor technology, and this merger  formed the Outboard Marine Corporation, which is now part of Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP). BRP produce the well-known Evinrude E-TEC direct injected motor, and all Johnson owners can obtain parts and servicing from BRP Evinrude, to keep them on the water.

Outboards are available in two types, two-stroke and four-stroke, and the Evinrude/Johnson outboard engine is a two-stroke motor. Two-stroke engines have many advantages, especially for boat owners who like sports and racing. They are faster and lighter than four-stroke engines, therefore making speed and acceleration easier. Two-stroke engines are also cheaper and hold their resale value better, and parts are easily available. In addition, the simpler design means that the engines are less prone to problems, and there are no belts and no oil changes.

One disadvantage which two stroke engines are said to have, compared to four-stroke engines, is that they cause more pollution, and so are less kind to the environment. However, the Evinrude E-TEC actually won the Clean Air Excellence Award from the US Environment Protection Agency in 2004, for its low emission levels. In fact, its carbon emission levels are typically 30-50 percent below those of a similar four-stroke motor. They also emit no smoke from the exhaust, so owners can be confident that they are keeping pollution to the absolute minimum.

When you are choosing your Johnson outboard engine, it is important to choose the size that is appropriate for your boat. You may find that salespeople will push you to buy the largest possible size, but in fact installing a motor which is too large for your boat is highly dangerous. The USA has Coast Guard regulations governing engine size, but if your boat does not have a Coast Guard specification plate, you should take advice from experienced people with a similar sized boat. Generally, a light aluminum, or 12 foot john, boat will only take a 12-25 horsepower motor.

At the same time as you buy your Johnson outboard engine, you will require accessories, including fuel lines and a fuel tank, and a flushing attachment will also be needed, for cleaning the engine. It is often possible to save money by buying these items together with the motor in a package deal. Remember also that the law requires you to have a number of safety devices on board, including a fire extinguisher, running lights for nocturnal use, and flotation devices.

Because of its low maintenance features, your motor should last you at least ten years. You can help to ensure it stays in good running order as long as possible by keeping it in good condition when it is not in use, making sure it is stored securely to avoid rust, and greasing the pivots. Looking after and caring for your Johnson outboard engine can ensure relaxed and trouble-free boating for years to come.  Deep Blue Yacht Supply is the authority when it comes to providing the best boat propellers for Johnson outboard engines.   Deep Blue Yacht Supply is also able to provide boat props for all other outboard engines as well.

Replacing your Johnson Boat Propeller

Johnson Outboards was an important manufacturer of boat propulsion systems for years.  Operating out of Indiana and Illinois, they eventually evolved into OMC, the Outboard Marine and Manufacturing Corporation.  With the new millennium, this company was in turn acquired by Bombardier, a Canadian company.  Following this shift, the Johnson brand ceased to exist as a separate entity.

This is not to say, however, that boating enthusiasts with Johnson outboards will be left in the dark.  There is still a thriving market for Johnson boat propellers.  When boaters find that their current Johnson boat propellers have worn out, become damaged, or need replacing for any other reason, they will have no trouble securing a replacement prop that works perfectly well with their engine.  Indeed, Johnson props are available in a wide selection of configurations and sizes, making the range of aftermarket solutions ample to say the least.

Johnson boat propellers can be found in both stainless steel and aluminum, allowing boaters to determine what is most important to them: cost, strength, weight, or a variety of other factors.  Apollo stainless steel Johnson propellers, for example, offer boaters the choice of either three or four blades as well as left- and right-handed configurations, with the diameter and pitch readings of individual propellers varying greatly to suit the needs of different Johnson outboard engines.  Ballistic stainless steel Johnson props also offer all of these choices, but boaters will find a predominance of models with three blades and a right-handed orientation.
