No pitch change (still a 13) but the new prop is not beat up and 1/4 inch larger at 10 1/4 inches.

I picked up a 10x13 from Solas couple years ago. Also, I recently added a TinyTac (knockoff) for about $13. Its nice to know your RPMs too.

I finally got a day off work so it was time to put the new prop on. Plus, My sister and her 6 kids drove out from Oregon and I promised the kids a boat ride/fishing trip.

I go to install my new prop and..... the Marine dealership got me a 10 spline prop. I specifically asked for a "10 inch, 13 degree pitch, 14 spline" prop. I'm about to bust a blood vessel.

My only hope is a early morning trip to the local boat repair guy. I hope he has a used prop that will fit my Johnson in his shop. If not; I'll be pumping up my inflatable kayak and getting an arm workout while the kids are fishing/doing their best to pop the boat.

The last time I visit the Marine dealership will be to return the prop and politely ask for my money back. If they give me a hard time; I might just come unglued.
