hello,
can anyone tell my what size of prop is best for a revenger 23 with a mariner 200 optimax?
used for speed cruising but also waterskiing.

Niels,

Find the recomended rpm of your engine (according to owner's manual), and for the given usual weights of your boat, try to find the best fitting prop. If the engine revs more than it should with the prop you have, then you must increase the pitch. On the opposite side you have to decrease it. Every pitch change gives 250 rpm more or less.

thanks

so far I knew already.
But I hoped someone was familiar with this combination(boat motor) and has a tip for me.
My experience with my former boat is that the Mirage plus prop 21 inch was very good.
But I don't know wich pitch to start with with this combination.
And maybe someone knows a better prop type.
Any sugestions are VERY welcome.
thanks a lot!!

greetings from rainy holland.
Niels
