Having owned a Nova I'm really curious how this boat is going to handle that much power/speed. Where are you going to be running it? I have a call into a guy that has a similar setup he's running on a Baja to find out what prop he's using. His Baja has a very similar hull shape to the nova and he pushing just over 625hp and a Bravo1. That thing chine walks pretty bad.

DareDevil is correct - 28P is a good guess

25 NOT - unless its a twin engine with 4 of his girl girls in it

Ok he's running a Mirage 4 blade 26, but he's a in a lighter boat. Open bow no cuddy.

Looks look like most of you think 28 is a good starting point
