I've got a 2006 197 w/RTP motor. I want to buy a back up prop in case of damage. I do mostly free sking, some course work and surfing. A few questions for you:

1. What prop came stock on the boat?

2. What prop do you recommend & why?

3. Where's the best place to get one?

Thanks all for any help you can provide.

Mike

Assuming you have the 1:1 transmission, your boat should have had a stock 12.5 x 12 4-blade prop by OJ. I tried a couple new props on my 197 and found the 13 x 12 3-blade by Acme (#843) made a noticeable improvement. A little better holeshot and gained 1-2 mph on the top end. I believe OJ has a similar prop that is available too - couldn't go wrong with either company.
