I took the wife fishing for Mangrove Snapper, 40 years ago.  She hooked a nice snapper and it bled from a nicked gill plate.  I look over, and she is crying for the nice little slab.  That's the last time she went fishing! :shocking: :shocking: :shocking:  She still talks about that little fish.

Attached is a link for the correct way to measure prop to pad


Yep. It said the same thing I said just worded differently:

"A propeller is designed to control the engine's RPM and hold it at wide open throttle to the recommended RPM range specified by the manufacturer of a motor."

Achieve this, and the pitch is correct.

Congrats on your decision  ~c~ I'll be following this one closely, I'm very curious to see what the quotes are. Also curious to see what kind of warranties they offer in the fall. Something to keep in mind, I know Mercury ups their warranty offer in the spring, it's just something they do.

The search for a Re Power provided is heating up.  I have requested quotes from 4 dealers.  It will be interesting to see what they come up with as far as a deal or even if they bother to respond to my request.  I will update this thread as it moves forward.  I am looking for a solution that is immediate.

The boat came from factory with 24p and it wouldn't get on pad at all. Prop was switched out for the 21p it has now. Going to see how it does with weight trimmed and I'll report back

I know I am late to the party, but correct pitch is usually chosen based on specs. Use your owner manual to find out WOT maximum rpm, and dial in the pitch of the prop to reach that specific rpm at wide open throttle. Too low of pitch causes the motor to over rev, and too high of pitch causes the motor to never reach full power at WOT.

Attach a tachometer to the motor and see where your rpm's are now at WOT without over revving the motor.

This is how I learned to do it and still do with desired goal to be as close to book specs on maximum rpm at WOT.

WDFW proposes simplified freshwater fishing
regulations, seeks public comment

OLYMPIA – State fishery managers are seeking public comment on a proposed package of simplified recreational fishing regulations for freshwater species, such as steelhead, trout and warmwater fish.

As part of that effort, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has scheduled six workshops to discuss the proposed changes with the public.

To review and comment on the proposed rules, visit WDFW's webpage at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/rule_proposals/. Comments will be accepted through Nov. 30. For a hard copy of the proposed rules, please call 360-902-2700.

Since last summer, state fishery managers have been working to simplify Washington's fishing regulations for freshwater species, including steelhead, trout, warmwater fish, sturgeon, shad and carp, said WDFW Director Jim Unsworth.

"For years, we've heard from people about how our regulations are complex – even for some of the most seasoned anglers – and act as a barrier to people trying to take up the sport," Unsworth said. "So we've been developing a set of regulations that will be easier for all anglers to understand."

This is the first year of a three-year effort to simplify sportfishing regulations throughout the state. Next year, fishery managers are scheduled to work on salmon fisheries in marine and freshwater, while fisheries for shellfish and other marine fish will be addressed in 2019.

"We're excited about this effort and look forward to discussing our first year of proposals at upcoming meetings with the public," Burley said. "This is a great opportunity for anglers and others to help us make our recreational fishing regulations more user-friendly."

The public workshops are scheduled for:
Spokane: 6 to 8 p.m., Sept. 26, Center Place, 2426 N. Discovery Place, Spokane Valley.
Ephrata: 6 to 8 p.m., Sept. 27, Grant County Public Works, 124 Enterprise St. SE, Ephrata.
Selah: 6 to 8 p.m., Sept. 28, Selah Civic Center, 216 S. First St. Selah.
Mill Creek: 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 3, WDFW Region 4 headquarters, 16018 Mill Creek Blvd., Mill Creek.
Ridgefield: 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 4, WDFW Region 5 headquarters, 5525 S. 11th St., Ridgefield.
Montesano: 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 5, Montesano City Hall, 112 N. Main St., Montesano.

Changes proposed this year would apply to freshwater throughout the state, with some exceptions. Some of the changes include:
Standardizing the statewide season for rivers, streams and beaver ponds to the Saturday before Memorial Day through Oct. 31.
Eliminating mandatory steelhead retention in most waters.
Reducing the complexity of regulations – such as daily limits, size limits and seasons – in lakes and ponds.
Standardizing regulations in rivers and streams for bass, channel catfish, and walleye. Under the proposal there would be no daily limit or minimum size for those fish.
The public will also have the opportunity to provide testimony on the proposals during the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission's meeting Dec. 8 and 9 in Olympia. Check the commission's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/commission/meetings.html for details on the meeting.The commission, which sets policy for WDFW, is scheduled to vote on the proposals during a meeting in January.
