08/25/2014 ToW (Tip of the Week) - Proper propping. Correct propping depends on your specific application. A couple of general rules are that your outboard should run at, or very near, its maximum-allowed RPM at wide-open throttle with an average-to-full load. A 1" decrease in pitch will increase your WOT RPM by about 150 RPM, +/- 50. The reverse is also true. http://bit.ly/K7CEQN

May is the top tarpon month in the Florida Keys, which means I’m on the water just about every day. I leave home in the dark and it’s usually dark when I get back home, so by this time of the month I’m running on autopilot.
