Here a short message from Holland. I recently purchased a 1997 17 Outrage with a 1997 Honda 90 HP 4-stroke engine. Although perhaps a bit underpowered, I like the combination. Can anyone advise me what is the best prop for this combination. The use is mainly on open water, skiing and kneeboarding.
Thanks in advance.

I have a Honda 90 on my 16' Dauntless. I use a 13.75 x 15" stainless steel prop. Your boat is a foot longer and 200 lbs heavier but both boats have similar Acctrak hulls. You might want to try a similar size prop or maybe even a 13.25 x 13 prop. You need to reach 6000 rpm on a light load for optimal performance.
