Hey guys,
I recently purchased a spear LTG and it has the power tech 3 blade stainless 14 pitch. With a Honda 50 tiller. Boat runs like a dream but I was curious if anyone had any input on a different pitch prop? I can get about 31 mph with 2 guys and not too heavy. Any input would be appreciated!
Thanks

Low/mid 30s is probably about right.

Jack Foreman runs a Spear himself. Give him a call and he can tell you what you need.

Did you buy the skiff in palm beach island? The one that came off of a yacht?

I am running a LTG w/Tohatsu 50 with PT SRD3 14p no jack-plate and getting about the same #s. Per RPMs I could drop to a 13 or (maybe)12 if loaded heavy but just haven't bothered.

How do you like your skiff? I am thinking about buying one....any regrets?

@LowHydrogen Sometimes its funny how many people are worried about how fast these little skiffs are. A better question is how much water do you need to jump on plane and how does it bite in a turn.

Running in the 30s past half covered crab traps feels fast as hell. *lol*

I can run by them but I keep thinking I need a jack plate for the Tailfisher so I can also get on plane in the same depth.
