AllDodge, great advice. What is your back round in the marine world?

What’s the recommended max RPM on that engine. I’m guessing you are close. That may be all the ol’ girl has in her.

The all important question: what are your goals for performance?

actually the boat is under powered and with alpha outdrive, For best handling and hole shot and acceleration - the Volvo DP was best for these boats. The bottom design is not for speed nor big waters. The Bravo 3 was the next best drive on these boats with mild power.

for testing and cheap cost especially with an alpha outdrive possible the Solas brand props is where I would do some testing with. Speed wise a 3 blade prop for that hull using an alpha outdrive.

My area prob had the most 225 BR running around from 1994 thru 2002 because the largest dealer in world sold many of them. Also back in 1996 bought a new 225 cuddy with a 454 .Volvo / SX outdrive. Like I said thou the Volvo DP outdrive on the 225 handled better. Not saying top speed but everywhere else sure did.

Ok was able to get the boat out finally. GPS speed was 49. Really couldn't get up to 4800 rpm but close. @4750. Anyone have any ideas for a new prop

You have to define for us what you mean by "I want more performance."


You have two (2) choices.


1) Ultimate top speed (which will likely mean slower planing, and a little less efficiency (higher slip) in the midrange).


OR


2) Better holeshot and midrange cruising performance (at the expense of ultimate high speed).


Do not expect to gain anything more than perhaps, and I mean perhaps 2 mph on the top end with only a prop based on your current prop and performance. I would wager you are near the max speed in your current form. In other words don't expect a prop change to give you a 5 mph gain.


If you opt for option (1) I would play with several 3 blade props in the 19" pitch range. Laser II, perhaps a Mirage. Just gotta try a few types.


If you opt for option (2) I would try some 4 blade models with about 1" less pitch. They may be slower (by 1-3 mph) but cruise better and come out of the hole better.
