I really like this RIB it is a little small for my whole family.

John,

I was not trying to rub the salt in, but I love this thing and Would love to go for a cruise when you get your new purchase going.

the prop on now is 10x15 would going with a 10 x 13 be a good idea for low end without over rev. at top end speeds WOT

Nah, ... you meant to rub in some salt (c'mon admit it ), and granted you did get a helluva deal. However, from here on in is where your real expenses start.

In general, you choose a prop for WOT rpm with a "normal" load (whatever that may be.)

If the 15 you have on there now is running a few hundred rpm shy of the max suggested rpm limit per the manufacturer, then a 13 should be fine.

You probably can under-prop it a tad and get away with it, as long as you don't run WOT for long periods.

Of course, to get actual rpm's you need to have a tachometer...
