2200 propping

Postby terry51 » Sun May 11, 2014 10:29 am

I was wondering what prop you guys are running on your 2200 and 2220's ? I have a Power-tech OFX 21 on my 2001 2200 ,with an OFX yamaha. Undecided with it. Just wondering

Funny you should ask, I just got back trying a Raker 24. It ran 67.4 mph. Hot and humid not a good day to make hp. By myself and half a tank of gas the Raker was too much for my 250 SHO to spin 6000 rpm. I run a 23 pitch that came with "don't know what type" normally. I will try a 22 Raker later on.

What is the max rpm for your SHO ? Not too familiar with it. I'm still a 2 stroke man.( 200 saltwater series yamaha ) but just had a phase 3 kit installed. Propping it now but my next motor WILL be a sho. By the way, what hull you running?

Max rpm is 6000. I'm running a 2220 Fisherman. The 24 Raker is too big, will try a 22 or 20 later.

A Raker on a Yamaha? May have to try that one.
I am running a 23 pitch M Series Yamaha prop on my 250 SHO Blazer 2220 Fisherman with a 10" Altas Jackplate. She runs from 60-65 depending on load and condition. Best so far is a hair under 68.

The 24 has too much pitch. The raker is a great speed prop I just have to find the right pitch . I was half way up on the jack plate and almost trimmed out and it still didn't blow out. The best speed was at only 5300 rpm at 67.4 mph. I'm trying to find a 14.5x21 to try. Had to get a omc spacer machined for a spacer.

If you find one, post the results.

Also did you have to machine a spacer or did you have to buy a different spacer?

The propeller is for a friend, he had to bore out a OMC thrust washer to run it on his 250 VMAX. He has a 22' Path Finder Tunnel hull. He picked up over 5 mph over the Tempest he was running. The 24 Raker is too big for his setup also. I hope to find a 21 Raker at a reasonable price and get it tweeked. I will post what happens.

Raker props come in even number pitches. 22, 24, 26, 28 etc. May be able to get a 22 and re-pitch it to a 21.

You got me looking for one now :lol:

I saw a 21 pitch on eBay for $500.00. It was a raker 2, I thought also that they came in even # pitch. I don't want to spend 500 bucks to experiment. I'll keep looking for a goo 22 and try it.
