Hey all,

Need to get a new prop for our I/O. Currently have a Land and Sea variable pitch. Between the force out of the hole with this prop and the drag from the rider it can be scary... When I was getting up on the skate the other day, the bow was pointing almost straight out of the water. My fiance almost s*** her suit, thought she was going to flip the boat...

Anyway, what would you reco? 18 foot I/O with a V-6 210 HP. Gonna weight the front with some sand or lead as well...

20 pitch, 4 blade aluminum.

Better value compared to stainless steel.

A 4 blade aluminum will defintely help, but if you've got the $$, defintely go for the 5 blade stainless, well worth the extra money.

I had a 19ft I/O 4.3L EFI, probably same engine as yours.
I ran the 4 blade aluminum first and was ecstatic with the performance. Then I bought the 5 blade stainless and it blew the 4 blade away!
I use a 21 pitch.
