What's the best all around prop size/pitch for an 80's Montauk with a 70 HP Johnson?

You didn't mention what year OMC 70 HP as this might make a difference.
However, I believe you have two options in the OMC line unless you want high performance and maybe an expensive Stainless Prop.
OMC Aluminum Standard.
The 15 pitch will gi ve you a much better hole shot and help if you water ski.
I had both props but mostly used the 15 pitch because the Montauk would pop up on plane rather quickly and trolled a little slower than the 17 pitch.

It's a 1996.
