New Prop advice

Please excuse my beginners question.

Need to replace a prop and not sure how I go about buying one.

What numbers / codes do I use ?

I already know the pitch I require just not how to pick the correct prop.

Any help gratefully received.

Engine is a 2000 Yamaha 60hp.

If you take the prop off you should be able to see numbers, you're looking for something like 11x13 on the prop

usually the prop numbers are stamped on the prop, look closely at the hub part and also take prop off to look where the washer sits.

It might also be worth sharing a few details about you boats current performance, E.g. Max revs at full throttle, how fast on the plane, does it cavitation. The combined knowledge of the forum (but not from me I'm sad to say) might lead to a better replacement that isn't like for like. Seeing as you are replacing it, seems like a good time to make sure you have the right prop.
