Table Rocker, that sounds feasible will have the prop checked and start from there. Thanks for all the comments.

I see the Ski Nautique 200 have an adjustable rudder to dial this issue in or out.

I am all ok with a slight pull to the right but due to the fact we have a fair crew of young kids an aggressive pull could catch an unexpecting driver out and launch a child overboard if not ready as it will go straight full lock, combine that with cruise and it could be a little risky.

I see the rudder design has taken into consideration the prop torque on the trailing edge, I was just wondering if anyone had machined with succcess to reduce this issue.

The rudder also shows signs of cavatation burn on the port side.

All in all, great boat though!
If you have a grind on your rudder on the starboard trailing edge, the way to neutralize it is to grind the opposite trailing edge. This can be done with a file or a grinder. I'd suggest leaving some pull in the rudder, however. There's nothing worse than a neutral rudder for driving with skiers in tow.

There is not a comparable rudder to the Nautique's 11a Tapped Rudder that will fit a MasterCraft as far as I know. I have one and it works well on my SN.

See if you can find another stock prop to try. Verify to ensure someone didn't screw up and put the wrong one on.

I'm sure that's never happened before.......
