Prop suggestions for this boat and a 135 HO?

I have my 'meeting' with the boat builder tomorrow.  Here is the boat, basically, although mine will have a glass windshield T-top and some add-ons such as a transom door, etc...  Just hoping to ensure he is thinking along the same lines...

Re: Prop suggestions for this boat and a 135 HO?

That’s really a tough question. So many variables, design, weight hull contours etc. my boat that weighs 1500  can’t hit wot range with a 17. Others with 19s hit upper 5k. So it’s hard to say. Your dealer should get you close. You can contact pt propellers in the nw and Jeff can probably dial you in. I don’t have experience with those props but they make so many different style. It seem like he could dial you in. My boat need more stern lift and less bow lift which IMO creates bow oscillation, porpoising. Good luck with the boat.

Just be sure to get with your dealer to "lock in" the 10 year factory coverage before the promotion ends on the 31st of this month.
