Was going to go with the 115, but decided to heed sage advice (Bigshot and JB). Hull is a 1972 pre-smirk nauset formerly powered by 1975 85 hp rude. Do I need a jackplate to avoid altering splash well in order to access lower mounting bolts, and if so which plate is recommended. Also is 13X19 the best prop choice?

Hi, Detra.

Yes, I recommend a jackplate, or a non-adjustable 4" setback plate like mine. Unfortunately I don't remember where I got it.

I use an 18" SS prop, but most folks use a 17". I think a 19" would overprop your boat.

is boat is lighter JB so a 19 alum would do. My boat with a 17 over revs and with a 19 does about 5400 so on yours I think you might get 56-5700 from the 19(redline is 5800). I got a 2 piece jackplate and added an alumium plate to make it a one piece for the most part. I have mine jacked about 4 inches up with a 5" setback....LOVE it.
