Re: overpropped vs underpropped

I have a diesel YSM8 it's governed, if the prop is too high a pitch She blows black,if the prop is too low the governer kicks in and the boat is slow.So the prop that gets the speed without the black must be right.K.I.S.S.Then you just pick the throttle speed!...Dale
