Prop question.

Hi, I have a 5.2m rib and am planning to hook up a '99 johnson 90Hp engine to it.

The engine came with a 13 x 15 prop on it. Now I know that this prop will have to be replaced because the pitch is too small for this boat.
And the engine isn't mounted to the boat yet so I can't realy tell what rpm's this prop gives me.

But can somebody tell me with about the same size of boat/Hp tell me what prop they have so I have an idea of what to look for.
The boat would be used just for fun and some water skiing but not heavy loaded .

I have a friend comming in from the states and would ask him to bring me a prop from there


Thanks in advance.
Stef

I'd try the 13 x15, it doesn't sound too far away.
