What's the make of the prop on it? It's not plastic by any chance is it?

Is it the right diameter. Sounds like it may be too small.

I'm going to have a proper look at it next weekend, as I said though the tow car os due a servcie so the prop will have to wait now, will just file out the couple of small nicks (which where in it when the boat was bought) and it will have to make do for now, cheers for all the responses though guys!

Hi, Did you get further with this? I have the same engine on a 5.3 ribcraft with a 3x14x19" ali prop, max speed is 34knts at 5900 revs and would like to increase the top end speed if possible as mainly using rib 1 or 2 adults for fishing and dashing across the bay.
