I have a sanger V215 with the stock prop, which for the 1,000lbs of lead I always run does OK. A friend has a Malibu 23'Lsv that seems to launch out of the hole even with full MLS and the wedge down with the stock prop which is a 4 blade. His top end seems to match mine with decent cruising right around 28-32 mph
Another friend runs the Acme 911 prop on his V215 that works well with his 2K in lead and H20 he runs but he did lose some on the top end and his regular pulling rpm are about 400 higher than mine. This is a bit more aggressive than I need as I will most likely never add more weight than what I have, I am old and beat up enough not to try anything new!
So the question is can I get a 4 blade prop on my boat to step up my performance without changing pitch as much as the 911 would? Obviously clearance is a factor and would the shaft strength be setup more for a 4 blade? Just curious since its winter and I'm bored.
