Daysailor wannabe cruiser
I've been looking for discussions on outboard propeller options for displacement(sailboat) hulls. I have a nissan xtra long shaft 6hp that propels my 2200lb sailboat. The stock propeller is a 8" pitch prop but now they have "elephant ear" "high thrust" propellers for that motor that are for sailboats. My current setup obviously works fine 90% of the time but when there is tide and chop I was thinking that a smaller pitch wider diameter prop would help me maintain speed against the waves. The prop is 69.99 with free shipping so that's not even one boat dollar.
