If it's an ACME prop they can repair it easily and cheaply. They are in Michigan and Eric there has been extremely helpful to me. I have that same hull and the prop question is usually an "it depends" answer. So here are a few bullet pointed notes:

 

  • Both OJ and acme make great props for that boat. You can fit up to a 15"
  • The 1235 ACME is a great all around prop for that boat. If you had the stock prop you are going to slow down a bit in top end but the grunt you will love.
  • If you surf at all get at least the 1235. https://www.wakemakers.com/acme-1235-propeller.html
  • If you surf a ton or wakeboard with a large crew and lots of ballast consider a 15" prop. The most aggressive is the 2419. It can handle any weight you throw at it, however your top end will be 38 MPH with the Monsoon 340 (which engine do you have?) and you will run high revs.

If i did it again I would probably get the https://www.wakemakers.com/acme-2243-propeller.html ACME 2243, which is the same pitch as the 1235 but in a 15" prop. I wish my revs ran just a tad lower and I had another couple of MPH. But it depends on use. When I am on my small home lake I dont care about top end. But I just came back from a week on table rock lake where you can travel for miles to find dinner/cliff jumping/smooth water and I wanted more speed for my rev.

Hope that helps. All I can say is that if you get the 1235 you probably wont be unhappy unless you run 4000lbs of ballast like the day is long, or want to travel around at 45 MPH everywhere.
