I need to replace the prop on my 99 prostar 205. I believe the current prop is 13". It is a 4 blade prop. Is there another size prop that will yield overall good performance and improve gas mileage?

Call Bill at Acme or Eric at OJ props. They will give you a reccomendation for your specific application. Probably a 13 x12 Acme 3 blade or 13 x 12 or maybe 11.5 XMP. Definately go with a CNC prop (OJ XMP or Acme) the difference from your stock prop will be night and day.

My ski partner is currently running the 13 x 12 XMP on his 96 205 and it made nice difference to the performance of his boat.

Do a search for PROP on this forum and you will get lots of info along with a prop test of the Acme vs XMP
