    Maximum pitch to take out of 15/19R Riva

    Just wondering,
    what is the max pitch I can take out without affecting the prop.
    Weather is killing me in miami, turning only 8400-8450 with 82mm ring in salt water. I already took 2mm out.I want to try the 81mm. (should I try the Solas 15/20 in salt water?

    Mods are Rude, rotax, etc......

    In the lake I am turning with another prop with added 1.5mm pitch 8500-8550rpm and 81.6mph.
    Thanks
    Hector

    Hector, check the slip on the SC clutch. Chances are you just need a shim.

    81mm is what I use in fresh and then I switch back to 83 in salt to stay at the same rpms.
