23 LSV Wakesetter 8.1 L Vortec prop question

Recommended Posts

thewakeboarder

Just wondering what pitch/type of prop is best for my 2005 23' LSV Wakesetter with the 8.1 L Vortec engine. Probably wakeboard 50% of the time surf 30% and cruise 20%.

which props are best for the whole shot and which are best for top speed? What would be the best for my application?

I had a 537 on my '06 LSV with 8.1 at 450'.

We have a 4 blade ACME on ours, not sure of model, I will check tonight.

What altitude?

If it is around 450' then I would go with the 537 for your mix.

'03 is a different hull.

It'll mostly be used around 1500 ft. around Phoenix AZ.

I also learned that the beam length is 100 inches on the 2005. But looking at the other 23 LSV's, such as the 2006-2008 it says 8 ft beam which would be 96 inches. Is it a different hull? Or did they just get lazy with the specification?

I think the dealer told me 2005-2008 were the same, and the 2004 was smaller, but Im not 100% sure.

03 was smaller. 04-07 are the same. 08 is bigger.

Sweet

I'm going to claim ignorance, but how can you have the same V25 Wake Hull, but have different Beam lengths?

As stated earlier, I do have a different hull, but do have the same engine.

2003 23LSV

8100/425hp

Lenght 22'6"

Beam 97"

Weight 3500 Lbs.

55 Gallon

V25 Diamond Hull

Elev. approx 1000ft

We just recently looked into props and both the dealer and a prop dealer (who talked to ACME) recommended that we run a ACME 381 which is a 13.5x17.5, .105 cup. Many of the charts actually recommend a much lower pitch prop, 12-12.5 for the 23lsv, but with the big engine, it can run the 17.5 without sacrificing power.

Just thought I would pass along the info we recently found. Not sure how much difference the wake hull makes.
