Perfect Prop

Recommended Posts

Shawn Owen

I have a 2011 LSV 247/410Hp and currently have an ACME 1235. Generally have 6-10 people in boat. Is this the right prop for surfing and wake boarding? I feel like the boat should be pulling harder out of the hole. Have 500# fat sacks in each corner and stock ballast everywhere else. Generally only fill ballast to preset rider sides. Thoughts, ideas or suggestions?

I agree with Ryan's recommendations.   I have the 2419 (15x12) right now (w/ the 409) and it works well.

 

I just bought a 2249 15x14.25.  I'm interested to see how it does for lighter weight days.  I'll let you know as soon as the river clears.

Unless you have a 555hp, or your goal is unloaded 45mph+ speeds, that’s too big of a prop for anything with decent ballast weight
