Correct Propeller Pitch for 1956 Sea Skiff

Post by Skiffdaddy » Sat Jul 06, 2013 4:50 pm

The 1956 Sea Skiff I'm rebuilding came without a prop.
We've determined the correct size and that it uses a left-hand prop.
Can anyone tell me what the correct pitch is?
I'm running the original CC K engine.
Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

What size skiff ? I would think the original K would have turned a right hand prop.

Thanks to both of you who replied. The FineWoodBoats link told me what I need to know.
It's an 18' Sea Skiff, by the way...should have mentioned that.
When the guys at my boat yard fired up the rebuilt K engine that came with the boat it had a right-hand prop on it. But forward and reverse were...well...reversed, so we figured it needs a left-hand prop.
