I am looking to buy a spare prop for my 2001 x30. I would assume just buy a new prop and use the old as the spare, so does anyone have any suggestions? 3 blade vs. 4 blade? How about what size I need? Are they pretty much universal for inboards? I don't care much about speed, mainly want power.
Thanks!

You're better off getting that information from the prop mfgr. Your stock prop is cast, not CNC, so you're likely to see a big improvment with a new prop, but you should call Eric @OJ Props and get his advice relative to your boat, engine, and desired boat use.

Go directly to the man that knows, Eric Johnson @ http://www.ojprops.com/contact_us or contact him by pm, EJ OJPROP, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/member.php?u=1537
Be prepared to give him any info he may need, like boat model and year, engine size, transmission, current prop, function (skiing, surfing, boarding, etc.), ballast use, gear, nominal # of passengers, etc. He need it to determine the best prop for YOUR application.

Now you're just cutting and pasting, Harold. That's cheating.

Let us know what prop you get. I just bought the same boat and would like a spare propeller.
