There is no standard prop that is shipped from the factory, each type of watercraft has different propeller requirements and those are determined from water testing by a knowledgeable person.

 

Just as a guess, I'll bet that you wil end up with a 15" or 17" pitch propeller.

 

If you know what model and size prop you have know and its top rpm with a light load aboard, we can give an educated guess as to what should work well for you.

 

Here is a link to a propeller booklet published by Evinrude -

5500 rpm is the redline so if you can get a prop that allows 54-5500rpm with a light load aboard, you will have enough rpm left for when there are 10 or more people along for the ride.
