Thunderbird/Evinrude 225 HO Prop
I have owned this boat (18' Thunderbird Formula) with 2004 Evinrude 225 HO (Lightning Gearcase)
since NEW. I have had a 1983 Evinrude 235 with 23" SST prop (Max
speed light load = 66 mph from standard pitot tube/OMC Speedo).
Try a 24 Raker, as this
will lock up the motor better and give you better top end than the SST.
Have some extra tip cup put in the SST as it will make a good second prop.
