13x13 OJ prop that has seen better days... but only $50. I keep thinking I am going to need a spare someday for my 2002 x-star. Is this inexpensive prop an adequate spare? Should I pony up and buy a new prop in a size and pitch I want and use my current as a spare? (would not mind adding a few MPH to the top end for my eventual trip to powell - currently running a 4 blade, not sure on size/pitch, it tops out at 39/40 mph)

Hoping your thoughts will inspire me on this subject. (I'm admittedly new on the subject of props)

Propeller - OJ Legend 13 x 13 - $50 (concord / pleasant hill / martinez)

Prop from a 1994 Mastercraft 205. OJ Legend 3-blade 13 x 13 with keyed shaft. Bore measures 0.810" but I assume that is considered a 1" shaft in the literature. Runs well despite a few nicks from Delta rocks.

EMail if interested. John

I assumed so - If I am running 14.25 x 14.5 four blade what kind of performance difference would I be seeing?

My 209 runs that prop your boat should be fine as a spare. I'd snatch it up

never heard of anyone running a 3 blade on a wakeboard boat.

I don't think that prop will fit. Isn't your shaft splined? My 2003 uses a splined prop, I think the keyed ones are for older boats.
