Prop change for improving hull performance
My boat is almost 19', setup is a Ford 6 inline engine with 170hp with a Volvo 280 sterndrive.
I run a 15x15 High Speed Propeller, boat reaches 4350rpm (engine max is 4500) at WOT, thing is this prop is a bit corroded and cavitates, and finally last weeked the hub went off.
Now I want a new prop, how will a Michigan or Super High Speed prop (long hub) affect boat performance, hull and bow altittude? Or Should I just get a new High Speed prop and expect much better performance?
I also noticed my rub rail gets VERY close to the water when doing some turns at 22mph, is there a chance some prop will affect hull attitude so that the boat turns better?
or could it be that my prop was so cripped that it lost so much power?
thanks in advance
