Prop recommendations for 2250 cuddy

Postby Dowell » Tue Aug 08, 2017 12:20 pm

Wife raked the prop on ramp when loading and while repairing and rebalancing prop . I wanted to try different pitches and sizes to get better toy towing and hole shot. 2003 5.0 gxi sx drive . Current prop 14 3/4 x 3 blade x 19 pitch . Boat is slow on hole shot when more than 2 adults onboard but top speed is 55 at 5000 rpms. Speed is not a concern. . Nearly impossible to pull a skier up. When tubing grandchildren I have to run about 22 to 26 mph to stay up on plane . I am not comfortable pulling them above 21 mph . I am presently trying a Lexor 15 1/2 x 3 blade 17 pitch . I know this prop is for large boats . Great hole shot but when cruising at 3600 rpm the gps and speedometer says 30 . At wot 5100 rpms at 45 speed but rev are high . Top speed is not a concern. May have too large of blade surface with the lexor and cupping may be wrong. Any suggestions or has anyone try a 4 blade and what pitch with a 2200,2300 or the 2250? Any suggestions or experience appreciated.

Did you try?

I am also thinking to change to 4 Blades.
