Default new guy wit mirage intruder

Hi there.

I am new here. I just bought a 1988 mirage intruder 217. It has a 454 (330hp) with a newer bravo one. It is 33 outside at the moment so I have no idea how it rides yet. I need a new prop for it and was wondering if anyone could help with some tips on a prop. Also if anyone has one of these boats what can I expect from her?

Come on summer

Depending on how the boat is set up, with the prop you have boat should run around 65-68 don't know what RPM your turning maybe 5800 you could go to a 19 4 blade, or a 23 3 do you have a prop shop around where you could try different props, thats your best bet, unless you can find someone with the same boat as you...

Hey there Miss Kristy!

It's Scott from Shipyard! Glad to see you found the OSO forums; you'll become addicted much quicker than you realize - it's a great tool!

If you want to get a standard prop I'm sure these guys will point you in the right direction; if you want to go with a custom labbed prop I'd give BBlades a call - it's an awesome investment!

Best,
Scott From Shipyard

Go to NWOffshore.com. It is a site based out of Washington state where Mirage came from. A lot of guys on the site have or had Mirage Intruders and Trovares. They can give you a lot of knowledge on your setup. My family had one when I was in college but it had a 350/Alpha setup. Good luck.
