So I did my first ooops in a while. Pulling the boat back on my lift and ended up dinging the propeller on my 2000 Malibu VLX. Looking for help on what propeller I need. It looks to be the original and it has on it OJ 14 18. But figured technology has changed and what propeller shoudl I get. We don't run any real ballast and would like to keep similar performance of the boat. We do ski and wakeboard and the kids do tube. Any suggestions on getting a new one would be greatly appreciated. Or even if someone that has one for sale becuase the upgraded.

Also can the propellers be fixed? Basically looks like on one of the blades a rat took a bite out of it. I have't tried to run the boat yet with the ding to see if it is vibrating as I was afraid of maybe hurting it???

Thanks

My 01 SS VLX came with the Acme 381. Boat tops out @ 47 MPH on the GPS right at the 5600 RPM rev limiter (not WOT as it will just bounce of the rev limiter and go no faster).

It is listed as a stock prop for the boat and is likely what was stock on yours.
