I bought a 87 Tristar 190 this year and have done quite a bit to it. It's also got a 351 Indmar. I added a tower, and a pretty nice sound system. Upholstery was redone 2 years ago. I'm not sure what the similarities are but let me know if I can help!83345

Welcome! I have the tristar 190 model and eric from oj props suggested the 13 X 13 LC 1" FORCE 4-blade prop form my boat (I wakeboard). Shoot him a pm and see if he recommends the same for your 220

Did you install the wake tower ?
What was your cost of the tower ?

I did install it... After much research, I decided on the Indy Tower and I believe I got the tower and 1 board rack for about $1000.00.

Jason, how did that prop work? I would like some more get up and go out of the hole. It doesn't feel like its got as much tail as it should.

Prop is $431 and I have not bought it yet so cant give feedback. But i would trust anything eric recommends. I would shoot him a pm since your boat is the 220 model. He may recommend something else.

My boat is the 190. I'll wait to get some feedback before I make the investment. It's "ok" for now, I'd just like some more "umph" coming out of the hole.

I have a 1989 Pro Star with 351 Windsor so our hulls are different but Ski Dim is also another good source this is the prop that I bought from them and it is awesome. Great out of the hole. Mine is a Left handed rotation make sure you know which way yours turns as well before the online purchase.
