What would the best prop for wakeboarding on this boat?

Any ideas?

Thanks.

:D Don't worry as much about the prop as how to distribute the weight to get a good wake. You need to weigh front and back to sit the 190 low into the water then beeeeeee careful of dipping the nose. Good Luck.

Yep, what he said! ^^^
I put two fatsack tubes on each side of the engine on mine, and it makes a small improvement. You really need to weight these hulls down to get a good wake. They just weren't designed to throw a big wake at 20 mph. It's small, but it does have good definition at the wake's peak though. I notice very little difference between my 3 blade and 4 blade prop for skiing, I'd guess the same for wakeboarding. Switching mainly affects the rooster tail, not the sides of the wake.
Good luck,
Kevin
