Hey all,
Does a Prop make a difference on your wake for an inboard/outboard motor? If so what is recommended and any idea on prices?

At the moment I am trying to rid the wake of a little white wash capping.

Props make a minimal difference in wake. Not worth trying out - and I am an Acme and OJ dealer. Best to put on a foil so you can trim better.

Yes, a foil will help.

any recomendations on what foil and is there any internet links for pictures and prices?

Is a foil easy to install?

Thanks for the info.

a foil will only help you plane out quicker and in some cases "shape" the wake. but in no way do they effect the size of the wake..

look at West Marine or Boaters World (store or online), or Overtons. There are several varieties and they are very easy to install; probably just need a screwdriver.

This is the one boater's world sells for $50. I bought mine from this seller. I haven't put it on my boat yet so can't comment on effectiveness, but this was the one most recommended by others in my/our position (I/O).

I bought a foil from Overtons I think is a stingray WOW what a differance on plane speed and with white wash the biggest advantage for ridding white wash is BALLAST LOTS OF BALLAST a four blade prop will help plane faster as well
