Prop advice

I have an 03 197 tt with a splined 14-20 ss prop. I am in the market for a spare prop and was hoping someone could point me in a direction that I wouldn't feel violated after purchasing such an item. I am actually looking for a 14-18 ss spare. Thanks for the help.

I don't have your boat but I have heard (and experienced) nothing but positive things with a CNC prop. I have the ACME and love it, have heard good things about OJ's CNC as well. You can't beat the accuracy of a computer making your prop! Talk about balanced!!

Yeah, I'd go with CNC. Bear in mind, it won't be SS.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

If you buy a SS prop.......you will be violated.

Sometimes you can find them on Ebay, but that is not a guarantee. Sometimes the deals show up, sometimes they don't. I chased about 3 different SS 3 blades a few years back but they all went too far north of my reserve.

I'm pretty sure we are running a 4-blade OJ and when we first used it we noticed a huge difference in performance. B

I just installed a 13x11.5 CNC OJ prop this past weekend. What a difference. Talk about smooth power, increased get up and go, and 1-2 mph on top end. I had the orginal 13x13 OJ that had been repaired couple of times.

If you do a search for "prop test" you can view the results I got from a side-by-side comparison between the OJ XMP 13x12 and the Acme 13x12.
