After busting our prop last Sat. I ordered a new ACME 653 three blade from Rich's. Red lable shipping was expensive ( $55 ) but prop was not $299. We ran it all weekend around Laughlin, Awesome!!!! Lots of power out of the Hole! 0 to 35mph in a fraction of the time. Pulled the biggist guy out with only a quarter throttle. Its like a bigger engine! Thanks to the guys at Rich's Prop Shop & ACME!!!

Sorry for the long post, just happy with another product recommended on this site.

I am not up to speed on what prop will work the best. I have a stock prop from the factory & get every one up fine. Do you compromise speed changing to the new prop?

Mike, as we added ballast and people to the boat she started to take a little longer to plane. Stock prop was an OJ 13 x 13 4 blade. When we went to Shaver lake, 6k elevation, it was almost a problem. We still got everyone up but it took quite a while to plane.

Ty the new prop is 13 x 11.5 3 blade 1 1/8"bore.

Yes. Talk to one of the guys at ACME. They can give you the correct prop. 14 seems very high. Do you feel the need for speed? Are you having problems getting out of the hole?

How much weight and where?

I got a 13x11.5 Acme 3 blade .080 model 525. I don't have anything to compare it to but it is awesome. With 5 peeps, 550 pounds of lead, 200 pounds of stereo & a full tank it goes from stop to 24 mph in about 3 seconds on 1/4 throttle. WOT speed is around 44mph @ 5000 but I only held there for a second or 2 because I am still running it in, it might creep up a bit higher with time. I'll be adding 700 in the floor & 500's in the back this weekend so I'll give an updated performance then.

Finished apart from the tower box, the painter is a butthead and has had the box for 7 weeks but still haven't finished it yet. It should have it for next weekend. Maybe.
