Default What prop should i use??

Last spring I purchased the 21 foot Hustler with flames on it, the one pictured on the Hustler website. It has a 6.2 L with a Whipple Supercharger on it. Im getting about 500 HP out of it. Im reaching speeds in the low 80's. However the prop just doesnt feel right..im runnin a 27" 3-blade mirage, i have tried a 29" 3-blade mirage and it just seems too much for the boat. Any suggestions on different styles or types of props..any suggestions at all would be great...thanks Justin

21 Hustler,

I am guessing here but you may try a 29-31 Hydro, if you are pushing 500hp in a 21 foot boat you should be able to spin it. Should put you into the 90's, need to ask yourself if you want to go that fast in a 21 foot boat, I have been in a 22 Checkmate w/350mag running 65 in 2-3 chop and is really hairy.

Small boat BIG power! Have fun

i have a normal rev limit of around 5000 rpm, this boat is a monster, i think it could handle high 80's, as long as the trim is right it is stable...i run on a lake so it is glass during the week, but really choppy on the weekends...thanks for the suggestion
