Boating is for fun to many of us. Most of us possess little knowledge about them, especially when it comes to boat props. Not all props are the same and a very few will be able to distinguish between any two props about their performance. Choosing a prop might be easy but choosing the right one for your boat depends on several factors like size, number of blades and material of construction.

The size of props is known by its diameter and pitch. In general, larger boats require larger diameter props and vice-versa. On the other hand, a lower pitch prop will affect the acceleration of the boat by making it faster whereas a high pitch prop will give maximum acceleration to the boat till the time the RPM is in maximum range. Hence, a prop which suits both your boat size and RPM range will be the best one for you. The number of blades affects the diameter and pitch of a prop. Though most prop comes with three or four blades, a little adjustment is needed to maintain the RPM in the optimum range. Durability of the prop is also necessary. The material of construction of most props is either aluminum or stainless steel. Though aluminum props come in a variety of designs and styles but going for the stainless steel props will be prudent as they offer the best performance and are highly durable.

Cupped propellers have curved trailing edges and they prove handy during maneuvering the boat in tight corners. You can achieve a high speed along with an economical rate of fuel consumption with these propellers. It is highly recommended that you choose a prop which is capable of reaching its maximum RPM range and the information to this aspect can be obtained from the owner’s manual.
