  • Prop question

    Want to know if a beach start prop is made to overcome the cavitation lag that happens when getting up on plane. Do they plane out more immediately or are they the same as flying start props we use. I would like to get a prop that works for my Airborne that will minimize cavitation between about 5 & 15 mph & just go. One of the clevers I have for it is pretty good but I still have to lean way up & crank the motor to get going.

    Beach start propellers are different than other racing propellers. You would have to ask a propeller expert as to what those differences are. What motor and propeller are you using on your Airborne?

    Go to Boatracingfacts.com website and ask Ron Hill. He is not only the owner of that website but he also makes propellers. He has Hill Marine Propellers. Contact him through the website. I'm sure he can help you.

      The motor is an OMC twin 25 on a D tower, I'm using D props, 11p & less 3 blade cleavers have worked best all around so far. A 2 blade Hopkins 13p I have is faster but hard to plane. This is a pleasure boat & I'm looking to make it easier to enjoy. Sit down, push start button & go
