I'm thinking of getting an additional prop for heavy loads and tubing/skiing.
Boat is a 5.5m humber destroyer with an 115 XL E-tec (V6 gearbox) turning a 14.75*19 Viper prop.
I see 39kn at about 5800rpm 2 up with a full tank but if I put 6 or more people in the boat I struggle to get much past 5100. I never really use WOT heavily loaded but obviously the engine is lugging.
I'm thinking of getting a 4 blade alu prop from steel developments for heavy load use and can't decide between the 14.75*15" (most likely) or a 17". I think 15" really.
Any experience thoughts would be good
