Default What size prop do I need? AGAIN!!

Was just curious....was running a stock 502/415efi and am moving up to 502/500-525efi and was wondering what pitch I should be running? Boat was running perfectly at about 5000RPM with a Hydromotive Q-IV 25P.....guessing the boat weighs about 3,800-4,000.....Do I go up to a 27P or a 26P??? I like the Hydromotive but have not tried others...perhaps a Bravo One four-blade?

Dude, there are really only to tell......guess and test. My money would be on the test method. I would start with the 26 and then go from there.
