The boat and the load aboard are what determines the speed that it can attain. Your dealer should be able to provide either the boat manufacturer's reports or a reasonable estimate. Check the Evinrude website for performance reports to see if your model boat is included.

The top RPM is listed in your owners manual but most of the latest 150's have a redline of 6000 rpm. For most applications with pontoon boats is to choose a prop that is as close to 6000 rpm as yoiu can get with a light load onboard.

 

This allows for adding a dozen passengers with gear and ice chests along with a full tank of gas to keep the engine in the recommended rpm band while heavily loaded.
