View Full Version : 2005 197 prop size

Hey all. I was trying to find out what size of prop that i will need to get for a 2005 197. My buddy has bought this boat and wants a spare prop. I know nothing really about them because I have been lucky enough on my 85 S&S to no need one.

Any help would be nice.

Thanks in advance

I have the same boat with MCX engine and my dealer let me demo a 3-blade Acme #843, 13x12. That is the ticket - will never put the stock prop back on unless I need it for a spare. I gained better hole shot and 2 mph on the top end. OJ has a similar prop available too but not sure of the part #.

ACME 843 for me, too.

I had a slight accident last night and had to put my stock prop back on....night and day difference.

Hoping to get my 843 back within 2 weeks for ski vacation....I'll be calling them tomorrow.

I always thought a 4 bladed prop would out perform a 3. I have the prop that came on my 04 197 and it is a 4 bladed and has 13.7 X 19.5V COJ stamped on the hub. It does have the 1.5:1 transmission would that be the difference in the prop sizes
