    15 Ft Skeeter

    Hey i just bought a 95 Skeeter SD 80 I installed a 1978 75hp Evinrude on it and I noticed that my top speed is only 36mph @ 6k rpm WOT with one man or two The prop is a SS 13x17. Was wondering if any body has the same boat and what pitch prop you have. Im looking to get all that i can out of this motor Safely of course.

    36 seems pretty reasonable for that size motor, prop pitch should be your main focus for adjustments IMO.

    thanks for the reply. I might try a 19 pitch prop, was just checking to see if any body else had the same boat and what type of setup that they had.

    Top speed for that boat/motor combo is about right. Don't make yourself crazy trying to wring a few more MPH out of it ,just enjoy what you have.

    You prob don't want to run that motor past the rev limiter too much. I'm not sure what the max should be but it's prob around 5,600-5,800. Testing a higher pitch prop, like the 19 you mentioned, might be a good idea. I wouldn't buy one outright - but maybe you'll get lucky and find one you can test on your boat before buying.

    That is pretty much tops for that rig. I wouldn't run that 30+ year old motor over 5000rpms. I have a 1979 85 hp and have it set up to top out at 5200 and it doesn't feel like I'm hurting it at that speed.
