Looking for some thoughts from you prop gurus
RPM was taken with tiny tach
MPH via GPS
Boat 14 Saltmarsh
Motor 1978 Evinrude 15hp

I had two aluminum props to run and the results are below
Boat was load for full day fishing one person( typical)

Prop: 9 1/2 x 10
Max rpm achieved 6010
Max speed 20mph


Had to run the motor in 2nd pin hole from bottom to get good bite and prevent cavition on turns and plaining

9 x 11
5500 rpm
19mph


I would like to buy a stainless prop and keep a minimum max speed of 20mph
Would like more stern lift and would like to run trimmed higher up
I run pretty shallow but have thought of adding a bob's manual jackplate for better shallow water preformance

What are y'all's thoughts?
