Hi guys I'm looking for some advice as to the best type and size of prop to replace the one I trashed on a log yesterday.
The boats a 98 Maristar with the Vortec MX engine, its used primarily for wakeboarding with about 1500 pound worth of ballast and 4/5 people on board.
The one I've trashed was a 4 blade 13.7x17 but a sorry looking spare that came with the boat is a 4 blade 14x20 and I suspect this was the original prop.

i called acme marine and gave them my specs, i went with what they recommended. definately go with a cnc'd prop, no need to waste time with possible imperfections. they run so much smother.

Both OJ and Acme are very happy to talk to you about your boat and make suggestions. Likewise, both organizations will send you a prop, let you try it, and send it back for another if it doesn't perform to your satisfaction.

Look at Acme's web site. They have a little online form you fill out about your boat, and/or you can "contact us" them and they will get back to you.
