Prop for XT21 5500 GDI

I traded my Malibu for a 2018 XT 21 with the 5500GDI engine. I have learned the hard way to have a spare prop or risk loosing days-week of enjoyment trying to find a new prop. We plan to use the boat for everything from tubing, skiing to surfing. So some work with ballast but not a ton. We generally don't have more than 3-4 people in the boat at once. Does any one know what prop would be a good spare or what comes on the boat?

We have the OJ 829 on my2017 XT21. We have the 6000GDI. We are at 700'. We normally run with the same crew size as you, but the boat likes more weight, thus we have 400lbs of lead evenly spread throughout inside the storage front to rear. Boat jumps on plane with auto launch.

do the new XT series boats have the same spline as the older 2008 Mastercrafts.. be nice to reuse props instead of always buying new ones
