What is the best size prop for this set up. Does SS make that much difference? Thanks!

Currently using a 13.35 x 17 SS prop. RPMs about 56-5700. SS seems to have more bite than aluminum, but honestly the difference is negligible.

I'm sorry...should be 13.25 dia, not 13.35.

Thanks Harry. What is your MPH at 4000 RPM's and WOT?

WOT is about 37-38. Haven't been on the boat since winter started, and my feeble old mind can't really remember what the mph is at about 4000. But I don know that the engine seems happiest in the 3800-4200 range. My fuzzy recollection is that at those rpms it runs 26-27.

However, I am convinced that this prop is pretty much "right-on."
