  • How to tell what size prop

    I have a 2000 PS 205 that the prop is in need of replacing. I cant figure out what size it is. It is a 4 blade and has a 13 stamped on the front of the hub. Is that the pitch or the diameter? I would assume the pitch since is does not look to be 13 inches wide. I have never had to purchase one so I really have no idea what to look for. I will take it to see if it can be repaired, but would like to know what size it is just in case, Thanks

    Consult the owners manual or the dealer to make sure that it is the correct sized prop. Props can be reconditioned for less than a new one.

    Locate a prop shop in your area or consult a local dealer for a location near you.

    I am sure that someone with a 205 will respond to this thread.

      It should be stamped on the hub between the blades and/or on the hub face behind the prop nut.

        I'd contact someone with some knowledge aboout the boat. It doesn't really matter what size prop is on there right now, since that may not be the original, and may not be the right size. For example, the ideal prop for my boat as recommended by someone at acme prop is not the original 14x18 that the boat came with. It is something like 13.5 x17.5. Slightly different.

        I recently bought a prop from Jim@baws. He was a big help.

            Hey Erk, what do you think about a SS prop vs the original brass prop?
