Best Maristar Prop

Hi guys I'm looking for some advice as to the best type and size of prop to replace the one I trashed on a log yesterday.
The boats a 98 Maristar with the Vortec MX engine, its used primarily for wakeboarding with about 1500 pound worth of ballast and 4/5 people on board.
The one I've trashed was a 4 blade 13.7x17 but a sorry looking spare that came with the boat is a 4 blade 14x20 and I suspect this was the original prop.

Both OJ and Acme are very happy to talk to you about your boat and make suggestions. Likewise, both organizations will send you a prop, let you try it, and send it back for another if it doesn't perform to your satisfaction.

Look at Acme's web site. They have a little online form you fill out about your boat, and/or you can "contact us" them and they will get back to you.
