Is your prop right hand rotation? If so then your transmission is a 1.3:1 (I think) and that will affect what prop you need. I have a 1990 Sunsport and I got a right hand 3 bladed ACME that works great. I usually run about 1200lbs ballast and 6 or 7 people with no problems getting out of the hole. I cant remember the exact numbers of the prop off the top of my head but I will look when I get home and let you know.

I'm almost 100% positive it's rh rot. but I'll make sure when i get home and if you can get me the number off of yours I'd really appreciate it
Thanks in advanced

Ok, I just looked and my prop is an ACME 1442. It is a 3 blade 13.25 x 15, 1" bore RH rotation. Like I said I have been very pleased with this prop but if you would rather have a 4 blade the other one that Bill Weeks (acme prop guy) suggested for my boat was the 654. Hope that helps.

rh? supra has never used reverse rotation? most older skiboats ran a 1:1 tranny. there should be a tag on the tranny. you need to figure what you have. before this question can be answered
