What boat/motor? Priority of Surf? Ski? Wakeboard? 

It’s a 2021 Malibu 21VLX we mainly wakeboard, kneeboard and kids are just getting into surfing. It has the M5di engine.


Elevation is between 115 to 168m

Speaking from having run it for over 300 hours on my LSV with the M5. The Acme 2773, 15x13 had my surfing rpm’s @ 3800 rpm @ 11.2mph/18kph. Cruising speed @25/40kph.   With your VLX being lighter boat, you would probably see a drop in rpm and an increase in cruising speed. I think you can find a better option for better overall performance, especially if you wake board at all. Others will chime in I am sure. Good luck.
