    How do I measure pitch? I have a 10 1/2" prop on my 25 tohatsu but have no idea of the pitch. I just added a jack plate and will probably need to cup the prop but would like to know what the pitch is ......
    Thanks
    Glenn :-?

    Or you can just look on the hub of the prop as it's usually stamped there ;)

    Well atleast all of mine were.
