Q:will this be the right prop for my mercruiser 3.0Asked on 6/8/2009 by dairic from ridgecrest, ca
A:Unfortunately we are unable to tell you this prop will work for your Mercruiser 3.0 without having some very important questions answered first. We are going to need to know the diameter and pitch of your existing propeller as well as your RPM's at Wide Open Throttle. If you would like to speak with someone about choosing the correct propeller please give us a call here at Overton's at 1-888-OVERTON and any of our Technical Product Specialist will be glad to assist you.Answered on 6/16/2009 by Brooks, Marine Buyer from Overtons
I have used both the 13.6 x 20 and this 13.7 x 18 on my 17' Maxum with 3.0 Mercruiser and they both run great. The 13.7 x 18 gets out of the hole much faster if you don't mind loosing some top end speed. (great for pulling ski or boarders) (Watch your RPM's at top end) The 13.6 x 20 runs just like the factory 3 blade but I think smoother and handles a litter better. You do have to be careful around rocks & stumps. Pros. The prop will shred (break away) if you hit rocks or stumps or anything hard. This will save your lower end & motor. Cons. The prop will shred (break away) if you hit rocks or stumps or anything hard. Then you have to by a new prop. I have done it twice in 2 years. It's still worth it.
