Ribeye s650 prop

Hi,
I have a 2006 ribeye s650 with a fairly worn out prop, the prop markings have been damaged so canít identify the prop. I am wondering if anyone who has a ribeye could give some advice about a replacement prop? And is it worthwhile going for a stainless steel prop?
Thanks

I have a 6.6m Cobra with an F150a and was told the best prop, by numbers is the black painted Yamaha M19, which I think is 14 1/2 inch and is stainless despite not being shiny. As an alternative Cobra fit the Reliance series 14ľ” x 18pitch S/S prop, its a start but best to wait to hear from other Ribeye owners.

I run an Etec 115 hp on my 6 m RIB. Recently I changed the aluminum prop to a stainless steel one. The results were just unbelievable. Greater speed and a feeling of strength that wasn't there before.
