I installed a Max prop on my 29' sailboat 3 years ago. I love it but I repowered this year and need to change the pitch and rotation. can you recommend a pitch. I was originally powered with a Volvo MD6A 10 hp. with a 1:1 ratio, I am now running a Yanmar 2QM15 with a 2.16:1 reduction. my prop is the 2 blade 13"

I'd call PYI rather than rely on this forum.
Exactly.. they are very helpful - and can make a recommendation if you have all the pertinent data of your repower - HP, gear ratios, boat displacement etc.

Their assembly instructions are on-line so the rotation part is easy enough. You just need a recommended pitch to make the final settings.

Know also that you don't have to haul out to repitch your Max Prop. Any model Max Prop can be repitched undwerwater and PYI will happily recommend a diver in your area who is qualified to do it.

PYI is also south of Paine Field in Everett!

Sounds like what I have, but do not remember the setting........
