Stainless Steel Prop - changing pitch...

Recommended Posts

Hello. New to the site and new Chaparral owner. I have a new 21 foot H2O. love it!! I am looking to put a new stainless steel prop with a different pitch to give me more out of the whole shot / pulling skiers, etc. I know going to a 19 or 21 pitch would help. I don't mind losing top speed. Wondering if anyone has any advice / knowledge on the best set up for this - 3 or 4 blade, right pitch, etc. I have the following engine:

Mercruiser 5.0L 1.62 Gear Ration. Alpha 260HP

Thanks in advance for your help!!
