WOT at exactly 5500 rpm's....Current prop is standard aluminum 13x17....What size stainless steel prop do you suggest...

Bill this is about the 5th time I have told you this....SAME size and you will run 54-5500.

In case you're looking for a second opinion, I agree with Bigshot's recommendation if you're considering Yamaha's black painted stainless steel propeller. If some other brand or one of Yamaha's performance propellers, a 16 or 18 pitch might work with a 13 inch diameter. Some experimentation may be necessary.
