Repowering a 1997 2950.  Had 300 Suzuki's on it with 25" shafts.  Seems like the motors were always wet.  Boat ran fine though.

With a repower, should I go with 30" shafts?  That should allow more motor out of the water.  But...

the old engines would barely clear the transom. In fact the cowlings would hit a bit.  I'm worried that a 30" shaft will not trim up very far.

Would like to hear from the proline community on this one:  25" or 30" shafts?

Generalization...
WELL IT might take some experimentation which can be tough and expensive with a lh prop.
assuming proper is there is such a thing for  mounting height  / antiventilation plate relationship and trim angle.

if the present prop doesn't reach your wot recommendation range loaded you need to go down in pitch until it does.


. If it slips a lot ,either starting out  at WOT ,you might need more blade area( by +diameter  or more blades.) assuming you arent getting ventilated by mounting position .

you have to do a rpm/gear ratio & pitch at given speed calculation, there are free calculators on web i think.

make sure hub isnt slipping by marking hub vs body index mark with chalk or white paint, you could be spinning a hub mildly.

sometimes a combo cant be perfect for all situations.

these boatsl with an outdrive  arrive with giant bravo 2 props and 2.0 or 2.2 gears slow but gripping. at 5500 rpm prop only doing between 2500and 2700rpm. with outboard 6200+ and  1. 5 or 1.78 gear you are spinning a small prop faster ..
what is WOT  RPM range for your engine?

I just completed my engine swap on my Pro-Line 240 W/A and need to buy a Prop to get this Party started...
I was running a 250 HP Yamaha HPDI until it went "BOOM!" like they like to do, so I came across a 2006 LF250TXR four stroke to put on it so that I too, can look down my nose at the two stroke folks......
Problem is...... On my HPDI 250, I was running a 15" X 15* Ernita prop that seemed to be a match made in Heaven for that Motor on my boat, Butt...... If you did not already catch it earlier in this post,,,,,,,,,, My New to me motor is a Dang, COUNTER ROTATION motor and I cannot even think of trying out my beloved 15" X 15 *RH Prop to see how it matches the New to Me four stroke motor.....
So.........................Is there anyone out there in THT Land, running a single Yamaha F250 on a 94 Pro_Line 240 W/A that can share thier prop specks with me so that I can order myself a new prop???


One Last bit of info, The new to me motor came with a 15 1/2" X 17* LH Salt Water Series II prop that will sluggishly run to around 4700 RPM and eventually hit 5000 RPM if you give it some time(Lightly Loaded w/ about a half tank of fuel...)... I was told to stay with the larger diameter prop if at all possible due to my boat being a heavy Pig???

Any help or suggestions would be greatly apreciated......

I just bought a new key for my 225 at my local Evinrude dealer. All he needed was the number from the original. It was not a blank, it was keyed to my ignition switch.

I have a few things for sale....

Engine box cushion. Never been used.

Bimini top hardware. Needs to be re-covered with Sunbrella.

Bimini top cover. When the bimini is closed, this blue cover zips around and encloses the folded top. Like new.

Make offer. You pay for shipping from California. Text me if interested.
