|What prop are you guys running. Can the boat handle a 4 blade? I was told that it could only handle a 3 blade. Seems like we should be able to reprop it with a 4 to get more weight in|
|You can certainly run a four blade but you would be wasting your money. CNC three blade will stay right with any four blade. Pitch and cup are more important than number of blades.|
|Hmmm. Well there is roughly 1800 in water weight and another 500 in lead. Then with 5 adults it was super sluggish getting up. Just seems like you should be able to add more weight to it than that. Anyone have a recommendation on what prop is the best|
|Probably the Acme 911 with that much weight.|
|how do you weight your boat Sparky|
I have a 4 blade on my 210.. not sure the pitch and size but its a powerhouse out of the whole with 9 people in the boat and front ballast full.. I can look at it this weekend if you would like..
|I run the Acme 911 and it is perfect for the amount of weight we run. We have ran up to 2500 and it still shoots out of the hole.|
|I had a 4 blade on my Sanger. If I recall it was a 13X13 when I got the boat and I changed that up for a 13X12. It was a stump puller.|
|I went from a 4 blade stock OJ to 3 blade Acme 911 I believe. Got it from Karl at Boarditup.com. Lost a bit of top end speed but it will pull your arms off sacked out.|
|Acme 525 3 blade is the bomb. The boat will sink before not planing. From memory it is 13x11.5 0.8 cup. |
Wake must have been nice with that poundage in it.

|Just looked up my order and I bought the 525 that Darren suggests. Sweet prop for the V210.|
|Darren, what's your top end, no ballast with that prop on your Sanger?|
|Probably 43 or so. I always fill the center ballast and have 400lbs of pop products bags and hit around 41-42 when I want to.|
|Yup same as Ryan 43-44, but mine porposes pretty good above 37-38 with the fixed weight I run. Not for long tho..... |
At 23mph weighted we pull around 3100-3200 I think. Really good on gas.
|Surfing is around 2200-2300rpms too which doesn't suck the fuel too bad.|
|911, perfect name for it!|
|Jason, not near as heavy as you do. With custom rear bags and stock front, plus 250 in lead under front cushions, probably around 1200lbs, not including people and gear. I went with the Acme 653 three blade which is good to around 1800lbs so I have room to add more weight at a later point. Stock was the 515 Acme three blade. And if I need to drive at higher speeds to get somewhere, I just dump the rears and leave the front and she never bounces.|
|ACME 525 here on my '03 V210. Never an issue out of the hole and averages about 4gal/hr of gas. Running approx 1,200lbs before gear and riders, so probably not as much as some, but works for me. Definitely noticed the difference where it counted when I switched from the stock.|
|I have the 911 on my V210. I run 1300#-2000# before riders and gear. Usually have 4 people in the boat. I wakeboard only. Great for riding. At 3000 RPM...we are at 22-22.5 mph. The PPass works very well with this combo. Speed control is super super steady...never varies more than .5 mph. Hole shot is super solid. I just barely roll the throttle on...and rider pops up. |
The most I have ever had in the boat was 7 people...one huge ass ice chest, + full ballast. Total ballast and people = 3000#. I honestly did not notice a difference in the hole shot....
The only down side is top speed is limited unless you really wind the motor out...which I don't like to do. The top speed I feel comfortable running is about 35 mph. I have had it as high as 38...but I just don't like winding the motor out like that.
With 2300# and 5 riders...I think you should go 911

|The four blade works great for me and I run heavy at 1800 elevation. It still has great top end too.|
