My brother just got a 1996 Montauk with a Yamaha 70HP 4 stroke on it. It looks like it has the stock aluminum 17" pitch prop. What prop do some of the other members like with this combination?
It has a top end close to my 1988 Montauk with the ETEC 90 and Viper 15" but does not come up on plane near as fast

These recommendations came from members with the F70.

Note the F70 has a WOT RPM max of 6300.

Engine should be mounted two or more holes up.

13 x 16 PowerTech SCD
13.25 x 14 SCP (6100 rpm's, 3 holes up)
13 x 17 Yamaha Painted SS
13.25 x 14 Yamaha Performance Series (polished)




1992 Outrage 17, 1992 Evinrude 115

A different prop may help, but a 70 HP 4-stroke engine probably won't compare too favorably with a 90 HP 2-stroke for hole shot.

If the new prop makes a big improvement, be sure to let us know. It would be very impressive if the Yamaha 70 can close the gap with that ETEC 90. The Yamaha 70 4-stroke is a nice lightweight engine, which may make all the difference.

I have a 1970 Katama 17 with powertech 13.25 x 14 on a brand new 70 hp Yamaha 4 stroke . I also have a 1988 Custom 17 with a Yamaha 90 hp 2 stroke . The 70 hp 4s performs almost identically as the 90 hp 2 s. Hole shot very close , but from 5000 to 6100 rpms , the 70 hits a passing gear and really takes off . The only real difference I see between the 2 engines is the 4 stroke gets incredible fuel economy .
