Sounds like you have my dream boat, Andy. Post some pics when you get a chance. I thought they were putting OJ XMPs on the new boats, which are CNC'd like the acmes. Maybe that's as of this year though.

I have had my ACME Prop for a year and I really like it. We ski and wakeboard with it. With the added weight of the fat sacks it has a much better hole shot then the OJ did. Anyway I use the OJ for my spare prop.

As far as spare props, I would highly recommend having one also. Nothing worse than driving two hours to the lake and damaging your prop as soon as you unload (BTDT). I try to always carry my spare prop and my prop puller in the truck, especially if we're going camping at the lake for several days. On second thought, damaging the prop on the first day of a multi-day trip would be worse.

Tom -

Just give Acme a ring, I bought mine from them directly, and had it on my doorstep the following day.
