Koale, I was trying to keep my original post short so I didn't go into a lot of detail. I did take the boat up to SP yesterday and as I expected it was a dog, low RPMS. Had same issue with a 60HP Merc 4 stroke that came from Kansas, I took to Blue Mesa and it was a dog as well. Changed prop to lower pitch, problem solved. Now runs in WOT range. Ideally I want to get RPMS on the 15hp tiller in 5500-6500 range. Called several places online and got varying advice. Just didn't want to buy and try several props if I could avoid it. I realize it can vary for every boat that's why I was wondering if someone had something similar.
