    I have a 1998-200 model 50HP Johnson 2 cylinder I just picked up. I am curious of what prop size I should be running. It is going on a 14' fiberglass boat. Thanks for any help you guys can give me!!

    We need more details about your hull and a pic would also be helpful

    id start with a 15p or a 17p, all 2cyl jonnyrudes run a 13" diameter wheel though ive seen some vary a half inch in both smalller and larger dia. but 13" is your most common id go with the 17 if its just gonna be you and a small amount of gear and the 15 if youre gonna be loaded to the gills with two people in the boat

    keep in mind that propping is trial and error so .... get a base line including WOT rpm and post that back up here and we'll be able to help you more.

    I'm selling a 15 pitch for that motor which I cant use at
    this time. It is a stainless OMC SST original which went for
    around 325.00 originally. I want $100.00 for it. Let me know
    if you're interested. I posted it in the boating, fishing sale
    for sale section. It's on the second page. My info is there
    so let me know if you're interested.
