2005 etec 200 (3.3) prop recommendations?

Hi first post, installed used 05 etec 200 on a 1998 wellcraft 23wa. Looking for prop recommendations greatly appreciated by anyone with a similar setup. Currently has a 15x19 sst prop can only get 5,000rpm out of it. 15x17 aluminum can only get 5,200 both 3 blades. Thanks, Mike

A 15 "   SST  would be a good starting point.   You want to get the full throttle rpms in the 5600-5800 rpms with a normal load of fuel, gear, and passengers aboard.  What speed are you getting now with the 19 "  SST ?

    A 15 "  or 16 "   Viper prop may be a bit faster on top end over the SST but may suffer efficiency and fuel consumption-wise at cruising speeds.
