i have a 04 x-star with a yanmar 6lp 315hp 550ftlbs with the 8.1 transmission with 1.6 reduction. max rpm is 4200 and operating rpm should be 3000-3200. i wakesurf 80% with 3500lbs ballast total and wakeboard 20% with just factory ballast. dont ever go more than 30 mph and also dont cruise much at all. i would still like to be able to put more weight in for 22mph for some better riders. currently have 849 14x20. find it slow to plane weighted and top speed is 42mph which like i say, i dont need more than 35. considering an acme 2271. looking for any recommendations or pple who have the 2271 prop with similar setup other than the engine to see what rpm it runs.
