I will be receiving my 2002 25-inch Yamaha OX-66 250 HP (rebuilt) this week to have mounted on my new-to-me 2001 210 Ventura. The two basic questions I need answered are: (1) What is the best prop to use and (2) in which hole should be engine be mounted?

I have just received the Lenco 12x9 trim tabs, which I will install this weekend (it had none previously). The boat came loaded with all of the creature comforts, including the macerator pump-out head and fresh water system.

For normal use, the boat will always be launched from a new Road King aluminum torsion tandem trailer, and with a full tank of fuel, water and oil (92, 20 & 3 gals, respectively). There is normally just two of us riding in the boat, me at the helm, and my young bride sitting in the port side lounge seat. We do not carry a lot of extra stuff with us in the boat, other than a cooler and extra life jackets. Its normal boating area will be the Charleston harbor and its tributaries, with an occasional foray into the fresh-water lakes of Moultrie, Marion, and Murray (altitude of 0, 32, & 327 feet respectively).

There is a fresh coat of ablative anti-fouling paint just applied (because the last coat was about half-worn off, and it was easier to repaint than it was to totally remove).

So, based on those parameters,
(1) in which hole should the engine be mounted, and
(2) what is the best prop (SST) to use
for general-purpose use?

Thanks in advance,

Mirage Plus 17P for the prop.

Congrats on the new rig. Mount the engine one hole down from the highest setting. The yamaha SWS props are decent, if you want a good cruise mileage the Mirage plus is a good start.
