Default Need Advice On Prop Selection

NEED SOME ADVICE PLEASE....!!!!!!!!
Hi....... Hoping someone might have a similar boat to mine or might have an idea on what props I should be running.

I have an older 1989 36 footfountain fever.I have just buiilt and installed the equivelant of mercury 540 bulldog engines with CMI dry exhaust headers. I am running Bravo 1, 1.50 drives.

The engines produce 650 Hp at the prop with 640 pounds of torque. ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA what I should be running for props on this thing or what a good starting point would be? Anyone have a similar /same boat that can give me some advice?

Any feedback or comments would really be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to read/reply to my post.......

Regards.....Richard

I would guess at some 28" Bravos. It will also depend on what rpms you need for WOT.
