    Hey Eric, heard you were the guy who knows props.
    I'm looking at alternatives to my stock 4-blade prop that has a few blemishes. I have a 2005 Prostar 197 Tournament Team wit the Indmar MCX and 1.26:1 transmission. Slalom approximately 80% and barefoot the other 20%. Have plenty of hole shot now, but would like a bit more top end. What's your recommendation? Thanks for your time.

    Hello there, I'm looking at getting a new prop on my 1990 tristar 190. It has 351w with 1:1 trans. The factory prop seems to be working just fine but it has a couple small knicks in it and Im thinking there has got to be a better performing prop made in the last 22 years haha! I only wake board, no skiing or footing. Dont use any ballast at this time but if I do it wont be more than say 500 pounds or so. What prop would you recommend? Thanks so much

    Hi Eric, my brother has an 89 190 and he's looking for a new prop. Any recommendations for a recreational skier and barefooted just looking for a better hole shot and a smoother ride from his 3 blade. Thanks for all your help.

    Hey Eric. I have an x 45 2006 with the 8.1 liter engine. It is new to me and checking into a new prop. We mostly do wakeboarding and surfing. We are in Saskatchewn Canada at elevation of 1800 to 2300 feet. Currently have a 13.5 x 19.5 not sure what the cup size is? Any advice

    Eric,
    Looking to replace a damaged prop on my 1984 mastercraft Stars and Stripes. It has 351w ford 1.52:1 power slot 1-1/8" shaft LH rotation. Current prop was 14x18 3 balde oj. Use of boat is slalom, wakeboard, knee board and tubing. At times will fill 1500lbs of ballast. Thinking 4 blade but not shure. Also looking at strut bushing and a dripless seal.

    Eric,
    My neighbor has bent his Vengence 3 blade stainless steel prop off of a Boston Whaler with 115 Mercury outboard. It is probably still an 8 0n a 1 to 10 scale. Approximately how much would it take to repair? Thanks for the help. The prop you sold me last year for my 240 maristar is working great.

    hey Eric, need some prop advise. I have a '04 Mastercraft X2 with the Predator engine (I think, not the pretty red MCX), everything is stock as far as I can tell, bought used June 2009 with ~150 hrs, came in from out West (Nevada I think). Prop was trashed when I got boat, had rebuilt at Nettles (Austin, TX) shortly after I purchased. Time for another rebuild but not sure if repairable this go around. Just wondering what numbers should I be looking for on a new prop? currently has a 13.7x19.5 C OJ and I see from factory manual, a 14x20 was stock. We use mainly on non flow (no current) lakes in central TX. 26 y/o son semi agreesive wake boards (~22-24 mph) & surfs (9-13 mph?) both with full factory ballist, 25 y/o daughter non-aggressive wakeboards (17-20 mph), wife still loves to slalom but non-aggressive & quite a bit of low speed cruising (short stints 25-40 mph getting places when water smooth enough). Typically will have 4-8 adults on board. no perfect pass. hard to maintain a consistent speed with the more aggresive wakeboarding and often difficult to maintain surf speed that low. I believe top speed is ~47-48 mph per speedo WOT. Should I be moving to different prop size/pitch?

    Eric,
    Was hoping you could help me choose a prop for my boat. I have an '83 MC Superslot. It has a Chrysler 440 in it rated at 330hp, although I'm told it actually puts out something like 430hp. It also has the powerslot trans @ 1.5 to 1. My needs are a bit different that what this boat was designed for (shows/tournaments) as I'll only be pulling one skier at a time. I think this combination is capable of swinging something pretty big but don't know where to draw the line. Looking for a decent holeshot, some speed, and something that might resemble fuel economy, relatively speaking.
