Really, you need a spare anyways so keep it, and get a regular prop. I got the high alt prop with my 30 and then purchased an even more aggressive Acme 2305 and keep my old High alt prop as my spare. So far so good.

For sure you always need a spare. An errant tree or sandbar can ruin an entire weekend unless you have a spare. It's cheap insurance so that a small mistake doesn't ruin an entire trip or week. Pulling the prop and swapping takes 5 min tops with the right tools. Invest in a nice prop puller as well.

Nice looking boat. I think I saw that boat at California Skier a few months ago.

I'm in San Diego, let me know if you ever need a third

If you plan on really sacking it out you may want to check out WillyT's new XStar prop thread. Apparently the 15x12 is even better than the 14.5

Sounds like the 15x12 501's put on his X30... The model number if I'm not mistaken was an ACME 2305... I have the 1285 and am happy with it.

2k ft is not high altitude by any means. It would not have been set up for hi alt unless the orig owner did it intentionally for more bottom end out of it.
BTW Lake Powell is higher than that. 3k I believe but still not cause to get a lower pitch prop unless you want to. Won't lose many rpms a that alt. 200 maybe.
