    I have a 30hp 2003 Tohatsu short shaft on a standard layout gheenoe LT25. Tohatsu states 5250 - 6250 rpms on the specification sticker.

    Currently I am running a 12 pitch Solas aluminum prop at 5700 rpm. I am considering trying a new prop.

    What pitch would be good in four blade stainless? Currently there is a power tech 4 blade stainless 11pitch asking price of $200 I can pick up used and am wondering if it would be a good choice.

    Also, if I went stainless three blade what recommendations would you all have?

    Thanks in advance!

    too many unknowns.
    is your solas 3 or 4 blade?
    what model PT are you looking at? Some are double and triple cupped, others have little cup at all.

    Currently running Solas aluminum 3 blade.

    I was considering the 11 pitch 4 blade power tech SRA4P11PTN30.

    I also just found a used three blade stainless powertech 12 pitch sra3r12ptn30 at a better price.

    Looking to reduce my trial and error costs as much as possible so any input is greatly appreciated.
