    I am rigging out a resurrected Beavertail B2 (Waterman) that had seen better days with a new 50HP Yamaha TLR (2 stroke) engine and need suggestions on prop pitch and / or brands. Also if anyone knows if there is enough room in the gunnel for a Yamaha 704 single binnacle control before I cut any holes would be great too.

    Try contacting BT to see if they have any data, also the folks at Power Tech props are very helpful, they have tested many boat/motor combinations.

    Mark @ Beavertail sent me a prop guy's phone number but when I call there has been no answer. Mark did not give me a prop pitch. I like the painted Yamaha SS props because we are always digging oysters with the props and all the thinner aftermarket props bend. The boat I just finished has a 4 Blade Power-tech on it that seems to work well. Power-tech leaves some steel in their prop blades too. I will email the contact in your reply. Thanks

    Ive got a PT SCB13 that might be perfect for you, it is nearly brand new with very low hours..

    let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks.......Skinnywater3,

    I have a job in my shop right now for a new custom polling platform and this boat has a Yamaha 50 so I am going to use the prop this week to test my Beavertail and will get back to you after.

    Insane holeshot. Top end in a loaded B2 was 38.

    steering is not bad.  the only drawback i noticed is it a bit louder than a standard through the hub exhaust.
