I repowered my 28' alumaweld this season with 011 225 zukes. I added a 3' transom pod extension and have been fighting prop issues. Been running a alum 15.3 X 21 solas... 42knots hitting rev. limitors at 3/4 throttle, slippage out of the hole and in rough seas. Porposing occurs on smooth water when opened up even with motor trimmed all the way down. Motor height is set correctly, cav plate skims the top of the water on step.
I know that aluminum is wrong prop for the zukes, but dealer talked me into going aluminum because he would trade until we got the boat prop correctly.
I looking for a good prop dealer in the area that carries 4 blades. I am thinking about running the power tech OFX4 15.25 X 23 or LFS4 16X23 vs. revolution 4 14 5/8 X 23.
Has anyone run these 4 blades? I appreciate your input.
I need the bite in rough seas expecially when I use the trim tabs to shove my nose down in a rough chop.
