Just bought a 209 from Arizona and live in Utah. My current prop is a 13 13. The lake I ski at is at about 5,000 feet, I took the boat out and only got 4,200 rpm and 34 mph. Does anyone have suggestion for prop size and pitch that would work well for skiing at this elevation?

OJ or Bill at Acme, both real helpful. When I took my 190 from AZ up to NM (4,000' to 7,000' elev lakes), I ditched the orig OJ 13x13 for an Acme 13x11.5. Didn't lose any top speed and brought my rpms back to about 4,700-4,800 rpms at altitude. Works great at low altitude too. Hits close to 5,000rpms at low altitude, no over-rev and pulls like a freight train (low alt).
