Default 2004 386 Sonic with 525s... props?

My buddy had the drives stolen off of his 386 while it was being brokered. Since then, the boat has been off the market.
He is in the process of replacing the Bravo drives as well as the stolen props. However, he can't remember exactly what he had back there.

26" Bravo 1 4 blades is my best guess for a starting point.
Thoughts?

The boat is going back on the market as soon as all of the parts are replaced.

I would think 28's
My 382 Formula with 525's ran best with 28 Bravos
Similar weight
Tell him to put Arneson's on it....

Remember, the 386 Sonic is a straight bottom boat.

26" would likely be the best. 28" is probably a bit much with a load.
