It has been quite awhile since I visited these pages; however, I have a feeling there are some good suggestions floating around here that will assist me in purchasing a new prop.

Unfortunately, even though I was aware of the drop in water level at the Colorado River, I was not aware of how much and my boat decided to clip a sand bar. Thus, my 13 year-old prop is non-reparable and I am in the market for its replacement

I presently run my 1989 Ski Nautique 2001 on a 3-blade, brass (some call bronze due to the mixture of metal), 1" - 14 x 16 and it pulls 200lb+ men out of the hole with no problem, planes easily (with perfect pass) and can cruise at top speed of 45mph (on smooth water). I predominantly wakeboard; however, a cross-over prop for water skiing is a consideration.

I am looking for today's equivalent wherein I would want a little easier pull out of the hole and I can sacrifice some top end speed (reduction to 40 mph would be fine).

Are there any suggestions on size, blades (3 or 4) and manufacturer that may be a good replacement?

Thank you for your advice as I would like to consider alternatives before letting the moths flutter out of my wallet!

Is there no one in here that has knowledge of their own props or a suggestion on what to purchase? Maybe I need to post in "prop-world"!

I would call ACME Marine. They will set you up with the right prop for your boat. 1-888-661-ACME

Calling either ACME or OJ props will get you the best advise.
You could try www.planetnautique.com and ask your question on the forum. Someone there may have the same boat as you and can give you some1st hand advise as well.
