I am currently putting together a stumpknocker 14 / mercury 25 combo...I'm looking for a good starting place for prop pitch for a 89 mercury. Haven't had a lot of experience with smaller tillers and no tach to use for rpms...Setup now with a manual jackplate 5" setback, 3" rise. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

13 pitch is a great all around size on the 25 merc.  I have a cheapo Solas stainless 13p on my Merc 25, and it's on an IPB 14/Skimmer skiff.  Running a fixed jp with no issues.  Good prop for the buck.

I appreciate the info...i put a 4 blade 13 pitch on it and it does well.  Don't have a tach but runs fast enough and handles well for where I go...again thanks for the offers to use the props.
what kind of prop? Brand? Stainless?
