Default Prop help

I started a thread a while back regarding prop help with not much or any response. What would put me in the neighborhood of 6,200-6,300 trimmed at WOT?

Iím re powering a 12m ftn. Engines are NA 565ís. Should be close to 740/750 hp at 6,300 + or -. SM3 drives I believe to be 1.5 ratio and Bam cyborg 1350ís which I need to confirm also however pretty certain 1:1.

Props that came with boat are clever 15 3/4x27. Previous owner claimed to only run 4,500 with SC 468ís with BM 250ís. I would have guessed to be around 625 however have no way of knowing for certain.

Any help would be great. I would like to start somewhere at least somewhat close. Tks

John

Current props I would have thought should be close however the previous builds/power tell me different.

thats what I thought Griff but all being new to me with boat and estimating previous owners platform. I estimated power on low side if anything I would think although I do recall being told the boost gauges werenít working. During the few trips out with those builds. Iím kinda in the dark here.

Why wouldn't you try what you have and then make the change if necessary,

I would and probably will if I donít get any advice. I just assumed Iíd be way off on rpmís (low). Hate to launch it in spring and only turn 5,200 or something way off. If I was off 300 to 400 etc would be fine and adjust from there. I think at one time this same boat had 850 super cat engines and used same props. Once again 2nd hand info though.

It just seems like there are to many variables at this point. It would be nice if someone like Blades would let you try a few.
