How do I choose the appropriate prop for my boat and engine?
There are several guidelines to follow when selecting the best prop for your boat/engine. First, decide what kind of performance you are looking for. Take into consideration not only the weight of your boat, but the weight of the boat with a full load of fuel, equipment, and a fishing partner. The easiest way to change the performance of the boat is by changing the pitch of your prop. If you raise your pitch, you should see an increase in top-end speed. If you lower your pitch, you will get up on plane faster. Keep in mind that changing the pitch will also affect your engine’s RPM. Next, consider aluminum v. stainless steel prop options. Stainless steel props claim better performance and last longer, but aluminum props are less expensive and therefore more affordable to replace. Identify the conditions you regularly boat in and use that in your decision-making. Are you boating in shallow or deep water? If you regularly fish in shallow water, you run the risk of getting a ding on your prop. In this scenario, you may prefer an aluminum prop that is more affordably replaced. Do you typically use your boat in salt water or fresh water? Stainless steel is often the best option for saltwater applications. Elevation and other environmental elements can affect your boat/engine’s performance as well. Be sure to consult your local dealer when selecting a prop to ensure it’s the best option for your circumstances. For additional guidance, please contact your local dealer.
I lost my ignition keys. How can I replace them?
The motor and the ignition are not connected via paperwork in any way. The only way to replace your ignition key is to remove the ignition from the dash, get the key number off the back of it, and contact Yamaha Customer Service directly. Please contact your local Xpress Boats dealer if you need assistance.
Should I leave by boats tank full of gas?
When it comes to this issue you can find arguments that go both ways. The bottom line? You should always stabilize the fuel to avoid residue buildup that clogs carburetors and fuel injectors.
Where can I get spare keys for my locking storage compartments?
For replacement keys, or to have repairs done to the locking mechanism on your storage compartments, work with your authorized local Xpress Boats dealer.
