The prop has 3 blades x 13" 1/4 diameter x 17" pitch.
What make is it? Is it alloy or SS?
Does the engine over rev when you accelerate?
How is the engine mounted on the boat? High/low?
Are any of the blades bent? or has any one tried to fix them by a DIY job (usual thing to save money but you don't in the long run and you need a specialit for the job IMHO)?
Can you change the prop with one 14 1/4 x 17 or 14 1/4 x 19? and see how the boat goes then?
Trying to fix a prop problem is a nasty and expensive experience. Good luck
