hello,
I have a 2003 150 sport with a 60 hp 2stroke. I took it out waterskiing recently and two skiis are no problem with the stock settup. I tried to get up on a slalom ski and I felt it was very close to pulling me up but not quite. Is there an aftermarket prop that will work better. Any help would be appreciated. The prop I am using now is the stock 10 3/8 13pitch.

thanks

Drag your rear leg until up.

Look into Merc's "Trophy Sport" which is the smaller cousin of the Trophy Plus. It is a 4-blade ss prop but I am not sure what pitch sizes they come in. A call to Mercury customer service may be a big help to you in this situation as they can answer any prop question you have.

Ilark , try a comprop 4 blade 11 inch pitch. A lot of torque for a small prop. They are just as tough as an aluminum prop. Cabela's has them in that size.high sierra
