Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Mine is the black watch 26 flybridge 2003 model and I'm not sure on the drive ratio sorry,
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.
According to the prop selector at Mercury, you should have a 21-23 pitch prop, turning 4800 RPM and at 44MPH.
Now with the current prop, you should be able to hit the rev limiter in the engine.
I would say that you are having an engine issue and not a prop issue.

No worries, thanks very much for your help I will get a mechanic out there to see if he can find something with the engine
