Found some props need opinion

I think thats overly optimistic. You should find that the slip percentage will be in the range of 15-20% at best. The smaller, lighter, smaller wetted surface inboards Ive dealt with tend to run closer to 15%, while the newer slalom machines tend to run closer to 20%. You may be looking at a greater slip percentage with that huge reduction trans and super steep prop. If you break 40mph you'll be doing pretty good. Ive seen a few 95-97 Prostars flirt with 50mph, but that's with the 310+ hp V8's.

As far as prop selection goes, that is going to be a major hurdle for you. If you had a gearbox closer to 1:1 (as much as 1.5:1) you could probably find somthing off the shelf that would work- but with a 2:1 and a low RPM motor, youre off the grid for standard ski boat props. You'll want to narrow down your search by looking at props that are 12-14" in diameter- you wont fit anything bigger than that on the boat.
I found a manufacturer ,produces custom props, 4 and 5 blade I will use the original prop (1st photo) for 1st time testing after geting exact weight and measurements of draft and waterline,I am thinking to order a 5 blade.

dont you think it will work with a 2:1 transmission better then a 4 blade.
maybe also a lot of smoke

Weight of Boat without diesel tank

Today we had lifted the boat with the interior and without the fuel tank.It weigh 1040kg ,2288 pounds. It think the final dry weight will be around 1300kg ,2860 pound.
How much an orginal mastercraft weighs?

A 5-blade would be interesting... what does a custom prop cost?

Did you reverse the picture that showed the original prop? It shows a RH prop, which wouldnt have been original.
