Re: Prop for my 9.9 Merc used for a sailboat

When I had my Pearson 26, I changed the prop on my 9.9 Evenrude.
I can't remember the exact sizes but I went from about a 9.5 pitch to about a 6.5 pitch.
It did make a difference in reverse and I had a bit more thrust at low speeds but I did lose a bit of top end speed
