One of the most important equipments for increasing the overall speed, handling power and performance of a boat is a boat prop. Most people tend to focus specially on motors and related equipments. Though the motors are undoubtedly one of the most vital parts of every water borne vehicles but along with this the propellers also play a significant role and managing to install a good quality prop will not only increase the speed but at the same time increase the overall sailing capacity by a fair extent. Going through tests is the only way of gauging the requirements and installing the appropriate accessories to uplift the overall performance of the vehicle.

The first test relates to the pitch and diameter. A propeller with a larger diameter is going to push much more water and is therefore good with the heavier boats that are commonly used for leisure, fishing and towing. On the other hand, the ones with smaller diameters will push a lesser volume of water which in turn will ensure that they manage to get an extra bit of pace and momentum which will help in speeding at a lower pitch. As the specifications suggests, they are best with the racing jets.

Boat props can also be classified based on the number of blades. The cup and rake of the blades. Commonly, equipments come in three, four as well as five blades. The four and five blade devices are mostly preferred as they suppress vibration and are capable of delivering good performance. On the other hand, the three blade equipments are ideally suited for the racing jets. The cups and rakes are important in setting the optimum performance level of every boat and therefore need to be selected and tested with care.
