I have a 10' Caribe RIB
with a 1994 Johnson 2-stroke 15hp OB. The motor
runs well, but has trouble getting my boat
on plane. I added those Dole-Fin things with no real improvement. Looking at the prop I noticed that it is 9.5" x 12.5 pitch
. That seems like way too much pitch
, which might be causing my planing problems. I don't have a tach, but I would say that the motor
is not running at its intended speed at WOT.
I am curious about the props being run by any of you on 2-stroke 15hp motors. Would you mind responding with your prop size and pitch?
Thanks and cheers, Bill
