BF200, thanks for the response, but I'm 99% sure that wasn't what I previously had on the motor, I had taken this prop off once last year to try a 13X19 allum that the previous owner gave me as a spare but we lost top end and gained a small rooster in the middle of the wake. I didn't right down the size of the SS (doohh) I think is was 13 3/4 x 18 3/4, but not sure. I don't want to spend a few hundred bucks to find out it's wrong..........Skipk

We have a 14.5x16p Powertech 4-blade Prop that is killer! We tried a 3 blade backup and we're definitely unimpressed. The 4 blade has excellent power, and pull up to 55mph with a loaded boat, and 4 onboard.

We purchased our boat new in 1995. Boat was set up with the help of many people actively in barefoot community. Our ski club hosted the BF worlds in the 90's. You could also call Chuck Alleger down @ BAWS his son was on the US BF team around then, he should have info on prop.

I am running a 3 blade stainless 13 x 19. Also a 13 x 17 three blade alum. The 17 gives unreal hole shot but over revs the engine(200 PROV) at WOT. The 19 is steep and doesn't over rev but still gets me to 56 mph. I believe an 18 would be best of both worlds, just haven't bought one yet.

We use the boat for skiing, wake boarding / wake skating and knee boarding, so maybe a
12.5 X 18 is great for foot'n, but wouldn't be the best in my application. This boat use to be down the NJ shore where you could rent it by the hour with a captian for all types of water sports. I'm hoping other's with a BF200 that have a 4 blade stainless that use it primarily for skiing can let me know what's on there vessel, Thanks - Skipk
