    Jack Plate a good investment?

    My boat came with a powered jackplate - I switched to a manual jackplate when I put on the new motor to keep the fine tunability and setback. I don't think there's much utility to a powered jack plate out here since we don't really have shallow water requirements (once you have the basic motor...

    4 blade 19" pitch stainless prop - Chad Hill Propellers $275 OBO

    14-5/8" diameter. Came off a 200 blackmax - was slighly overpropped for new motor (and old motor I believe). I was at 43 mph at about 5000 rpm for reference on a 26' narrow light boat. Mercury hub included. No dings perfect condition. In Venice/Marina del rey. PM or respond if interested...

    Mercury 225 Help

    My new 200 was doing something similar - even sputtered and died once - upon inspection my racor filter assembly was leaking a little fuel - turns out the metal head of the assembly was pretty corroded and not getting a good seal. I replaced the whole thing and seems to have fixed the issue so...

    And if you have to you can get a manual jackplate for not too much to give you more adjustability. Got on one mine (to replace a powered jackplate that crapped out).

    Yamaha f250 prop.

    SMB - PV 1/14

    Took the day off yesterday to take advantage of the awesome weather and burn some gas. Gave my wife a break - got the kids breakfasted up and ready for "school" then headed out. Headed down to the north end of PV in 85'-110' good marks- tried plastics, some frozen squid I had picked up and...

    Suzuki Df140/150

    This is right on - I was getting between 2.5 and 3 MPG at 30 with 200 blackmax. Looks like I'll be around 5.5 MPG with the 4 stroke at 30. Even more crazy is idle up to plowing speeds - way more than double the economy. At this rate the new motor will pay for itself in 10 - 20 years lol
