Did you know?

A propeller’s pitch has a massive effect on your boat’s performance and fuel efficiency. Pitch is the forward movement of a propeller through one complete revolution measured in centimeters. Lowering prop pitch will increase acceleration and pulling power. A higher pitch prop will make a boat go faster as long as the engine has enough power to keep the rpms in the optimum range. If the engine doesn’t produce enough power to run a higher pitch prop all performance suffers and engine damage can result.
