Is the prop original? If so, I would check with Acme or OJ and go with their recommendation for a newer prop. Prop technology has come a long way since 1996. That might give you all the kick you...

Tell me more . . .
I have a 5 blade and love it. Also have an Acme 1285 but prefer the OJ since it runs a couple hundred rpm less and seems to affect the wake less.
