    Dave, what does this mean in English??

    GPS speed, RPM's, current prop dia/pitch, etc...

    I'm sure someone here has some helpful input if they know a starting point of where you are at right now performance-wise.

    That 9.8 should be an ideal little motor for a hi-sider.

    I have run an 8.5 X 8.5

    and am running an 8.5 X 7 but it looks cupped ....

    When funds allow I will get a tach ...

    but the 9.8 merc 2 stroke is a LOT faster

    and the 15 HP merc 2 Stroke with the sting ray and the Capt. Ron prop is Freakin Scairy fast !!!

    So Far I am NOT impressed by 4 Strokes !

    But soon I will be testing an 8Hp Yamaha ... and I bet it will Stomp the 'Hatsu 9.8

    9.8 hp is 9.8 hp, no matter whether it's 2 or 4 stroke or a wenkel.

    Something isn't right with the combo, but you'll probably need to get a tach first. How fast is it pushing the boat?

    I have to take that away from you!  There's nothing wrong with 4-stroke performance, 4-stroke runs same top speed as a 2-stroke but 4-stroke has more weight.

    I have a 9.9hp (enchanced to 15hp motor) 2-stroke engine.....
    I know the yamaha offer 9 X 11 J-1 propeller is terrible set-up because the blade are wider and fat like a solas prop so I switched to 9 x 10.5 J model pitch and I noticed this one has a thinner blade propeller like a black max propeller (the mercury brand) runs alot faster and more RPM than 9 x 11 pitch J-1 Model.

    9 x 11 inch pitch J-1 model 5750 RPM fat solas blade design (yamaha brand)  24.3 MPH

    9 x 10.5 inch J model 6050 RPM thinner more cupped blade design (yamaha brand) at 27.9 MPH. ;)

    You just gotta find a right propeller for a 4-strokes!  U have to look very carefully on the blade design, not just because 4-strokes are dogs...no....you're wrong! ;D
