  • Best prop for my tracker

    I need the experts help. I have a 17ft bass tracker with a 45hp merc. The prop is a 13pitch and at full throttle I am turning 5200 rpm at 23mph. I like the speed but the hole shot is seems really slow. I would like to know if this is the best I can expect or can I make so changes. So what are your thoughts. Would a SS prop at the same pitch help or is is really a need of changing pitch? Thanks guys

    That seems really low mph for that motor/boat. is that a 4stroke? My dad also has a 17ft tracker but has a 25hp 4stroke and can hit 21mph by gps. I would think 30mph would be about right. Something doesnt sound right.

      I have a Bass Tracker PT 165 and I have a 2005 50 hp 2 stroke and I too am looking for a prop. Someone suggested a 12 1/4 x 15" When I got the boat I had a 25 hp merc and it would do 22 mph.

              Welcome,
              You will likely get more response if you start your own thread rather than resurecting a now 4 year old thread.We havent seen hwsiii on here since the gulf oil spill.First read the stickies at the top of the page and the helps on the prop store page.Give us your boat/motor details,prop size(usually under the prop nut)
              Run the boat with your present prop.get us the max rpm and speed.with a light load.
