Chances are that you have a counter-rotating motor, that is unless the whole motor was replaced. I believe that all nautiques are that way. I could be wrong. I have an '88 2001 with a 351. I ended up getting one of the Acme 3 blade props, and I am in love. The boat has incredible hull shot with over 1500 lbs in it. Check out www.propellersonline.com. I got mine a very good price. I got the model number 543.

Jeff, the top speed actualy is 2 mph faster. Not much though. The less pitch gives you a better hull shot. If your sole purpose is for wakeboarding, I would go with the same one I got, that is if you are looking at the 3 blade Acme's. Give Acme a call and they will give you a ton of information on the props. They helped me out. I hope this helps.
