What Props do you use - 2000ESX

Postby Argonaut » Thu Jul 19, 2018 6:13 am

Just about to close deal on a new 2000ESX with Mercruiser 4.5L 250hp
It comes with a standard Ally prop - no good for me.

The boat will be used for towed Watersports - not really interested in top end, while its nice to zip across the bay ... 95% of use will be in 18-22 mph range, and want good holeshot.

My current 20' bowrider uses a Stainless Steel High Five, and has been very good .... as the 4.5L gives me 50 more horses, would there be better options ..... hence making the question, or if not anybody run a High Five - if so what pitch ?
The High Five is quite small diameter (13"), hence wondering if Vensure for example might be better choice.

Understand the theory of prop selection to correct WOT .... however if someone has done this, I can look to buy in the correct prop - and then test.... with no local dealer. not an option to try several ... and expensive to buy more than 1.

I did look at Mercury prop selector page .... but that needs the gear ratio for the Alpha Drive ...... anybody know what this is ?
