New prop recommendations

Recommended Posts

It appears that I currently do not have an acme prop unless they previously stamped the numbers on the blades. I currently have a 4 blade 13.5 inch prop with maybe LLP8999D stamped on it. Not sure of the number after the 8, might be a 5 or 0? Anyhow we mostly surf but do wake board as well. I have wakemaker 740s in the rear and a sumo 675 for the bow. Last year was our first year owning a boat so still trying to get it dialed in. The current prop will get us up and going to around 10.5 mph @ around 3200 rpm but doesn't like to go any faster no matter how much throttle. That's with the wedge deployed all the way down. Obviously bringing the wedge up any really increases the pull on the engine. Most of the time it is just my wife and I that are out on the boat and no other crew. Also at cruising speed at 3500 rpm is around 27 mph. We are at 660' elevation and have the monsoon 350 for the engine. What do you guys think?

Hello,  I have a 15 LSV with the 350. I had the old trusted acme 1235 14.5x14.25 on it. I changed to a OJ945 and like it much better. It’s a 15x13. Lost a little top speed but has no trouble accelerating. I run 2 650 in addition to full ballast. 
 

you are welcome to borrow my 1235 if you want to try. Nick 4043580321. I’m south of you in PTC.

OJ 948 is also nice with 15x14.
