Correct Prop for a Ski Nautique
 
Okay I know it's a mastercraft forum but I own a mastercraft so who cares. Lol

Got the ski nautique with a 351 and 1:1 tranny. Need a better prop. Acme suggest the 540 3 blade and OJ suggested the following 2 props leaning towards the 4 blade. XMP 13x11 3 blade and XMP 13x13 4 blade.

I know people on here have had these boats or used these props. I need feed back. Pulling a skier up that weighs 205 is a but tough at the moment.

Nice boat. I'd ski behind it too, and wouldn't be surprised if it skied better than my 197.

I've had a Stingray with a 4 cylinder that had trouble pulling up a 205 lb. skier, but I never thought someone with an inboard ski boat have would have such a problem.

Sorry, I have nothing useful to add to this thread. :o

Thanks, there's a thread about this boat when it was in the purchasing phase. It was a deal for sure.

I weigh around 240 at the moment (sympathy weight for a pregnant wife :D) and have the stock 13x13 4-blade and Predator engine, and it gets me up just fine if the driver knows how to work the throttle right.

I can't answer your question, but I do like the boat.

Try posting on Correct craft fan. I'm sure you'll get and answer quick.http://www.correctcraftfan.com/forum...ral-discussion

It's interesting that Acme recommends a three blade prop with 12" pitch, and OJ goes with 13".

I think a classic boat like that needs a classic prop to push it. A 13x13 three blade prop would be ideal, and I have one for sale. Perfect!

It's right hand rotation, don't forget that part.
