Yeh, there must be something wrong with their website. I'm pretty sure they're still in business.

Sorry guys I just had to download the Java patch to view it.

These are the props Acme suggested:

If you do have the 1-1 gear I am suggesting the Acme
1609 13 L 11.5 three blade nibral 1" bore .060 cup. This propeller sells for
$439.00. The 1609 will give you the extra power for wakeboarding &
wakesurfing + good holding power + will still be able to give plenty of
speed for skiing. You will loose abound 2-3 mph on top end speed. The Acme
three blade has more blade area than the average four blade propeller. If
you were only doing wakeboarding & wakesurfing then I would suggest the Acme
913 13 L 10.5 three blade nibral 1" bore .060 cup. This propeller also sells
for $439.00. The 913 would have more hole shot but you would loose 4-5 mph
on top end speed & would turn around 300 more rpm at ski speed.

I had the 13x12, but we don't do much, if any, wakeboarding. Difference in hole shot over stock was incredible. I think you'll be very happy with the 13x11.5. The 1609 must be relatively new since I last looked. The place where I bought my most recent acme does not seem to stock a 13x11.5 with a .60 cup. They have the 13x10.5. Most of their stuff is priced at about $350. Check with one of the dealers on this forum to see if they can better that price. Acme was always quick to tell me that I could do better on price if I called anyone but them.

Does anyone out there know where I can get an Acme 1609 13 L 11.5 three blade nibral 1" bore .060 cup for cheaper than $439.00?

Call Delta Propeller. They sell the three blade Acmes for $351.20. The 1609 is not listed on their site but I would bet they can get it 877-238-8214

I just looked to see if that was an echo and realized that I hadn't mentioned Delta in my post.

I think there is a discount coupon code available on one of the other boat forums as well (or at least there was at one point).
