Propeller for ribcraft 5.0

Hi,
I just bought a 2010 ribcraft 5.0 with a 2013 suzuki 90df.
I would like to know if anybody knew what propeller i should put on it? It has the stock propeller that is a 17" and i have not had a chance to try it as i live in Finland and the water is currently frozen

To be honest before even considering another prop I would hang on until you can try it out as you will need to know how it performs currently ie max rpm, top speed, hole shot and midrange so you can see which areas need improving by changing prop. It will also allow you to be able to gauge the correct pitch for your needs.

A 17" prop on that setup sounds about right. You need to know what the sweet spot WOT RPM is for that particular engine & work from there.
