2000 205v Speed, RPM and prop.

Hi,

I think my propeller is not a good one. My 205v 2000 run at 40-42mph at 5200rpmon a calm water. Does it mean my prop is not a good one. What should be the standard performance of my boat ??

Max speed
Max RPM
Prop spec...

Thank

I just picked up the same boat.....mine has the LTR 330 hp. I'm running the stock prop OJ 14" light-cup. Not to sure about max rpm, but I know I had it up around 47mph off the speedo. I plan to bring the GPS next time out to get an accurate speed. Your prop details will be stampped on the prop right behind the prop nut.

Go directly to the man that knows, Eric Johnson @ http://www.ojprops.com/contact_us or contact him by pm, EJ OJPROP, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/member.php?u=1537
Be prepared to give him any info he may need like, current prop info off the hub, baseline numbers of the speeds and RPM's for the current prop, boat model and year, engine size, transmission ratio, function (skiing, barefooting, surfing, boarding, tubing, etc.), ballast use, fuel load, gear, nominal # of passengers, etc. He will need it to determine the best prop for your application.

those numbers you posted sound pretty "normal" for that boat. What makes you think you might not have a good prop?

You might be underpropped just a shade. We're the TBI or LTR engines designed to run up to 5200rpms? If you're getting those rpms and speed without much weight in the boat, I'd say it's about right. If you got the boat loaded up with people or ballast, rough water, headwind, etc, probably drop you a couple hundred rpms, right where you'd want to be.
May be able to get a more effiecient prop from OJ or Acme that will give you the same rpms and a couple mph more (if you still have a std cupped prop).

5200 is max RPM on the LTR. I have an ACME 541 on my DD 205 and it will get me 45-46 mph confirmed with GPS.
