I have a 25hp etec with cmc tilt and trim on a lt25 gheenoe. Factory prop is a 10.3x12 pitch and it had too high of an rpm. I put a tach on the boat and replaced it with a Powertech SRA 12 10" diameter. I am looking for a larger diameter because with the sra I am spinning 6200-6300 rpms!!! Way too much!!! Any suggestions? Looking at a Turning Point Express 10 1/8" 14p prop?

Ran a solas alum 4 blade 10" 12p prop and bounced of the rev limiter.... Stock prop is the best as far as rpm goes but I still feel it slipping at wot.

I ran the stock prop again wednesday. It ran 5400rpms with a 165lb buddy, 12 gallon livewell blacked out, my 175lb self and a yeti 35qt packed out. I lowered the motor last night and put the SRA back on. The cavitation plate was 3 inches above the bottom of the hull so i lowered it to 1 inch above.

livewell, empty cooler and myself I've seen 30mph. I am hoping that I experience no blowout when turning. The motor WOT is rated for 5500-6000 and I would like to be around 5800-5900 area. I think the rev limiter is around 6300.

I checked your numbers and @ 6300 rpm's your prop was slipping 10%. You would need more pitch to compensate for that much slip. I'm guessing when you lowered the motor it reduced the slip and brought the rpm's down.

Rpms solo are around 5800-5900 with the SRA312 prop. Any turn and it blows out... Looking at larger pitch prop

What is your Gear Case ratio ?

You may just need some Cupping added ...
