    Another question, how do you know when it's time to replace the prop due to gradual wear? The blade kinda has a point on the end so I assume it's time. The exixting prop is 10x13 have no idea what RPM is(tiny tach on order) With 2 guys(~310lbs) heavy arse 45qt yetti cooler, trolling motor, battery, and 3 gallons of gas it max was 24mph per GPS, however i phone avionics app said 23 knots.

    Boat came with a 10x15 i am afraid that would drop the RPM to much.
     
  2. I'd go lower pitch if I was you but no way to tell unless you know your rpm. Panga s are heavy so if it was me I would go 10x12 . But the top rpm of that motor should be is 5500
