Thread: Yamaha F150 Prop

  1. #1

    Default Yamaha F150 Prop

    I have a Hewescraft 220 Searunner hardtop with a Yamaha F150. I have been running the 15.25 x 15 aluminum prop for 6 years and get good performance. 38-40 mph @ 6000 rpm. destroyed my prop on Saturday at Anchor Point and am looking at going to stainless. Yamaha has a performance bulletin for the Reliance Series 14.25 x 17. They are about $550. Anyone running one of these? Anyone running something else that works well? I am open to sugestions before spending $550.

    I would pay a prop shop to run a test and buy it from them otherwise you are making a guess as to what will work best. You will see a world of difference with the SS prop. When I had my 21' Seahawk I went from aluminum to SS and it felt like I gained 30% more HP and jumped on step much faster. I had a prop test done and I am not sure what I ended up with but it was worth the $$.

    220 Ocean Pro Yamaha F150 running Yamaha's standard 3 blade aluminum 16M (16 pitch forget the dia) prop about $135.

    Gets me my 6000 rpms.

    I have a Solas 4 blade 14.5 X 15 SS prop on my 09 Ocean Pro HT ET with a 150 Yamaha. It tops out at 37mph 5600rpm. This prop came with the boat so I dont have a comparison. It seems to do the job well.

    I'd buy a Solas prop off ebay, quality props at a great price. Smaller diameter equals more rpms overall, going from aluminum to SS equals more rpms as well. I'd try a 18 or 19 pitch... I have a 22' flat bottom skiff with an F150 running the Yammi 13.75"x21M SS prop and hit 53-5500 rpms at full throttle depending on load.

    I'm at a 15 pitch prop on my 19' Pacific Skiff and F150. Gets me 6k and 44mph wot. Does real well with very heavy loads too. Be curious to hear what stainless gets you.

    You are leaving so much on the table it is ridiculous, go up to at least a 19pitch...

    AKBONES,
    I just got an 14 3/8 x 15 apollo ss prop from propmd, the prop and insert was 250 and shipping was 45, I put the prop on and got about 2.5 gph better fuel economy at the same speed as the old prop which was a 14 1/4" x 17 ss, however i am running a yamaha f200 on the same boat as you have.
