As many you know I barefoot and Wakeboard. My new Enzo 216 is a bit short on the top end I would like to be able to barefoot at 43 and I am getting 41 or 42 I know that does not seem like much but it makes a difference.
Any way I emailed Eric at OJ and asked him for help I had read about the 475 prop that some Malibu owners had been running. Plus I wanted to try there 13 X 17 to see if was any better than my Stock Acme. Eric told me that the 475 was to big of diameter for My Centurion but he would cut one down a bit so I could try it. He also sent a 13X 17 for me to test. No only was he willing to customize a prop for me to try but he sent both props and never asked me for a credit card number.
Long story short the 475 was awesome hole shot! Very smooth and held the speed perfectly. We both knew it was probably not going to work for my application since I barefoot but for a loaded wakeboard boat it would be an excellent prop! I used it to pull a Ski Show practice with my boat yes that’s right a 21’ 6” 4300 lbs V drive pulling 12 skiers.
You should definitely Consider the 475 if you are loading those v drives down with tons of weight.
The 13X 17 was also very good smooth held speed perfectly Neither prop would work for me since the Top end with the OJ was almost identical to my Stock Acme.
The moral to the story OJ is building some fantastic CNC wakeboard props if you are looking to upgrade your prop drop Eric an email! email@example.com
