after doin a few new installs on my 91 maristar like tower bigger stereo and three ballast tanks i took it out for a little test today and i noticed that with all the tanks full and full tank of fuel she was pretty slow coming outta the hole, it has a 3 blade 13x13 on it now, i was wondering if any one else has changed props and what type of differences they have seen from changing props

Changing the prop can/will modify everything from hole shot, to top-end, RPMs at wide open throttle, prop wash at different rope lengths, and bow rise. There are tons of good prop comparisons on this site (like this one for example (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=43948&highlight=prop+acme)), but to really ensure that you get what you need I would suggest calling OJ and/or ACME with your boat specifications, current prop, and RPMs at WOT. There are some folks on this forum from the prop shops occasionally too, but I'd give the companies a call for more immediate and in-depth discussion.

My $0.02. Good luck!
