New Prop

Thinking of a new prop for my 95 prostar 190. I mainly Foot and Ski with it. I currently have the standard 3 blade prop on there. What is the advantages of going to a 4 blade prop and what would everyone suggest. Also how easy is it to change. Thanks

Either very easy or reasonably easy to change if you have a puller. Might require a torch if it's been on there for a while.

I'd suggest a CNC'd 3 blade from Acme or OJ over a four blade for skiing/footing.

As for which one, this might help you.

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.

However, new props are prohibitively expensive
