2004 Prostar 209 prop

Hi,

Just recently bought a 2004 prostar 209 and comes with a 3 blade prop.
Is 3 blade standard or the standard prop is 4 blade?

Regards

Francisco

My 2001 209 came with a 13x13 4 blade.

I swapped it for an Acme 3 blade and saw an increase in performance.

Have to check the brand, it will be difficult because the boat is already in the water!

Same Prop on my 02, where did you see the performance increase? Wake boarding, surfing, slalom skiing, or just top speed?

Performance increase was all around.

Slightly better performance weighted for wakeboarding, I have ~1100 lbs of ballast.
Most weight ever in the boat was 10 people plus full ballast. Still got on plane, but slowly. Wake was big enough it gave my buddy severe memory loss when he took a spill.

Top end was better too. picked up ~2 mph. This is more important to me cause I foot more than anything else.

I've been very happy with this prop. I bought it off a member here, but I can't recall the number and it is blocked by the nut.

Eric from OJ suggested a 13 X 11 LC Splined XMP 3blade. This would be for surf and Wakeboarding.
I have stamped on mine something like 13 ill 14 hhcup. This current prop is sluggish with lots of weight.

When I talked to Eric he suggested the stock 13x13 4 blade.

Maybe that XMP is only available in splined shaft, or they didn't make it 3 years ago when we talked.

Yea on most days we have 6-8 people, a cooler, ALOT of gear, (2) 500 backs, and (2) 400 bags. To me it resembles a wider nauti 210 wake when you get it backloaded. And yes it will get BIG and nasty with that much weight. With 8 people it takes some temporary relocations to get up on plane somewhat quickly. i could give 2 craps about anything over 30mph

And how much gph of fuel your boat uses? I have the TBI engine and from I noticed I think it will burn more fuel than my 1992 carburator prostar 190!
