Prop pitch on 9.9

by lauraj » Thu Nov 20, 2014 9:56 pm

buying new 9.9 yam. dealer says prop comes with 11 3/4 x 7 previous prop on 2003 was 11 1/4 x9 1/4.
Joe at Shipyard says that engine cannot handle larger pitch. (old engine also has option for 12 pitch)

Anyone have insight/experience as to which pitch would or would not be best?

I have the same question, anyone have any thoughts?

I have just re-hubbed my old 9.25 pitch props as spares but it sounds like they are not good for spares on the new 9.9s with 7 pitch props?
