Zodiac MK5 HD + Evinrude FICHT 115

I just bought a Zodiac MK5 and wil be able to get a compleatly rebuild/updated/ovehauled Evinrude FICHT 115 (2001). The question is wich propeller should I use (Or at least a good starting point).

For what use would you like the boat propped for?

Solo, top speed?
Load carrying (lots of people, lots of equipment, or diving)?

Most of the time 2 people at about 75kg + tent food and beach stuff to survive a week or two. Planing for a 100L fuel tank. Top speed is not the main goal, fuel economy is (Not for the money but for the range ;-)

On the safe side, a 17 pitch aluminum 3-blade prop.

You may even be able to squeeze a 19 or 21 pitch aluminum 3-blade prop.
