Default prop choice

Who can tell me what the right choice of prop is for a tripple 42 fter 7,4 454 magnum 365 hp, gear ratio 1;50.

I use now three blade 23 p full throttle 5200 rpm +

I thinking to buy Bravo's 24p

Top end speed is not important for me.

please any suggestions.

I have heard of some trips running a bigger one on the center drive to feed the outer drives.

Not me, I ran 29 three blades on all three drives, four blades were too much surface area and caused the boat to porpoise at certain speeds
