Crap.Called Team Ward, the company that makes War Eagle boats. The fella I talked to was super helpful and confirmed that the dealer mounted the engine in the recommended holes, but was pretty shocked that it was propped with a 17P. He said he ran the exact same boat as me once with a 19P PowerTech PTR3, which is slightly bigger in diameter and cupped quite a bit more. He said it ran great, so I should probably be running a 19P at minimum. I think I'm just gonna trim down some, lay off the throttle a little, and live with this prop for a little while until I finish getting these lithium batteries paid off, then I'm going to get a different wheel. That Yamaha prop selector keeps hinting at props in the 20-21 pitch range, which sounds about right to me.

You pay a small fee to try out different props based on their availability and send them back within the time frame. I was going to use them but they were out of stock on the prop that I wanted to try and I got tired of waiting. They might work out for you. Check them out online.
