so i just took delivery of my new H210 it has a sx outdrive with single prop 1.97 GR with 250 HP4.3 l .. it came with 14.8 x17 prop .. at 4200 rpm its going about 30mph [garmin gps] does this sound right ? its got lots of power .. my 2016 H190 200hp 4.3 came with a 14.3 x21 ... just try to figure out why a boat with more hp is getting a smaller pitch , yes i know the new boat is bigger but a 17 pitch seems small ....

Ayuh,..... The "Right Prop" is whatever one that allows the motor to run at 4400/ 4800 rpms, at Wot, lightly loaded, 'n trimmed out,....
