Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Raker Prop

    Like all other guys with boats,I am in a neverending quest to pickup a few more mph.I have heard great things about the Raker prop's.I do not want to commit to buying one until I know what pitch/diameter is right for my set-up.The motor is a 1993 Johnson 120 hp t/t on a 19 ft alum boat.I know I need more bow lift,and I heard the raker will do this.EDIT: Sorry Mrtool. No soliciting allowed. Try the Want Ads.

    I have a 24P raker on my '86 120 HP looper pushing an 18' Hydrostream (bowrider, paded V, about 1400 lb with motor and me) I get great holshots and a top speed of 60 MPH. Very pleased with it. I would suggest that, if possible, you work with your dealer to make sure that the choice of prop is suitable for your needs.

      Re: Raker Prop

      The Raker will give you lots of bow lift. My guess is you are running a 19 in aluminium right now? If so, and you are getting about 5400 rpm a 20 in raker should be ok. I had a 18 ft deep vee fibreglass with a 150 Ficht. With the 19 alum it did 5500 rpm at 49mph, I put on a 20 Raker top speed went up to 56mph @ 5400rpm. Also the boat road higher out of the water and had much more bow lift. It also handled much better. When I traded in the boat on a new I/O I kept the prop, had it rehubbed for the I/O. I also tried a 22 raker, my rpms dropped to 4800 rpm and top speed was about the same. Stiletto props have a blade geometry similar to a Raker

        mrtoolsome dealers will allow you to test a series of props until you get one that works to your liking. You need a tach and run her in somewhere around 5500+.
