I just bought a new 2007 MB B52 22'.
I want to get a backup prop in case I hit something.

Do most of you go with a stock one? (mine is an ACME 4 blade 13-1/2 x 16). It works fine for me, but I'm fairly new to boating and don't know what I might be missing.

$455 with shipping. I didn't know they were that expensive.

I wouldn't spend that kind of money on something stock. If you run some weight, and have a bunch of people, you will want something better. Contact Karl at and he can help make a good suggestion for your boat.

yeah, what Darin says. If I was to get another prop, I'd get one with a pitch set for a boat heavily weighted down. With that boat.. it's pretty easy to get a lot of weight in it since you are already starting at 1800 lbs. Add a few big boys and a cooler.. you get up there pretty quick.

I won't be riding with more than 4-5 people and seldomly use the ballast.

The ballast is great, but our family is just starting out and wont be using it much for a few years. As for adding weight, years and years.

Should I still go with something other than stock?

That being said I would stick with the stock prop, 1161.

Thanks for the help. I talked to Karl at boarditup today, good guy and very helpfull.

I may go the upgrade since it's a backup and maybe we'll grow into it. We'll use it full time if/when we do and have the stock one for now.
In the meantime I have something to use if I clip the bottom.

Thanks again and boarditup is great.
