Has anyone run an Acme 2083 on any Sangers? I picked up an Acme 911 (10.5" pitch) since I brought the '05 v215 up to 6000' altitude, which ran pretty good but was didn't have quite as much holeshot as the 12" pitch stock prop did at sea level. Since I don't care much about top speed as we board and surf and I really wanted it to respond well out of the hole with a lot of ballast, I decided to try the 2083 (9" pitch). I haven't gotten the prop yet but as I anxiously await I was curious if anyone had any experience in the area? FYI - the top end was 44mph @ 5000RPM at sea level with stock prop and was 39mph @ 5000RPM at 6000' with the 911. That was with only me in the boat and no ballast.

If you are running significant ballast that prop might be great. Do you have the Bennet trim tab on your boat? That can help starts and top speed quite a bit, as well as other benefits. It's worth getting any help you can. Your 330 hp is closer to 260 at your altitude.

Yeah I've got the Bennett trim tab and it helps a bunch. I basically run with it down almost all the time. I can feel the drop in power for sure. I'm glad I don't slalom or Barefoot. It would be miserable at altitude since it's not as simple as repropping and losing some mph.
