Prop Advice Suzi 150 on 6.5 Rib

I have a 6.5M which we don't use for toys or skiing. She is a cruise boat often sitting at 25-30 knots. However, I do drive her aggressively in the rough or when I am out on my own or with consenting adults. Had a 150 opti with the prop which came with her (2003) for years and would like same top WOT and ideally some aggression in the rough. Any ideas / advice on the prop?

What prop is on it?

What revs are you getting?

Standard one that came with the off the shelf Suzi - and I haven't got boat in the water yet.... new rig. Never played with alternative props and my friends suggest I might be a tad disappointed with the off the shelf prop at WOT? Used to a 150 opti - again with standard SS prop.

Sorry, not enough info to give any advice as I don't have that exact boat/engine.

Run the boat, check the prop size, make a note of the max revs and what revs you are cruising at.

I wouldn't be playing with props unless you have a problem to fix and you can only get that info when you run it. I don't know why your friend thinks you won't like the top end, it will likely be very close....except you will be able to hear yourself now!
