That is totally correct. I'm talking basic math here. If the pitch # changes; EVERYTHING changes! --- Jer

Gear ratio is 1:1.36 props might have been labbed not sure.
boattest report for info athttp://www.campionboats.com/downloads/Chase%20910%20I%20SC%20-%20TWIN%20496%20MAG%20HO%20MPI%20Merc%20Bravo%201. pdf

If I replace the 2 Rev 23's with a hydromotive what pitch is comparable?
(damaged one prop)

I've spent a lot of time in same boat but one engine.

These are lightweight (for size) and have a pretty flat bottom.

Rough water ? It does not like rough water at all. Use trim, trim tabs, and keep speeds down and it will make it but with a lot of banging around.

I actually like it since it does air out so well, however, it comes at a penalty - rough water.

With the 1.36 to 1 drive ratio the #'s are beginning to make more sense. Hydro's props are just what they say they are. Don't really know about Rev Props but Throttle-Up can tell you! --- Jer
