If the gauges donīt lie the rpm in wide open throttle is about 4500-4700rpm. I think the boat should run 60+mph so new prop would be good, so any advice for choosing the right prop would be nice...

What is on it now? mine had an aluminum 19p stock,the 21 mirage keeps my eng at 42-4300 which is a little low but I like the cruise speed over the 19 and top end is better mph.
Let me know what you have on it now.

Ive got a 21 x 14 1/2 four blade turbo on my 460. My RPM is right at 4300. It takes some effort to get on plane with a full load, full tank , four people coolers full of beer , etc..... but it cruises real comfortable at 48.
If I drop to a 19 I can get to plane quicker and get the RPM up but Ill loose my top end. Its a viscious circle.

Ever use a 3 blade 21? I think it would be easier to spin.
