Default 1990 Regal Velocity Prop Selection

Good Morning OSO Family,

I am typically active over in the Formula section but I recently purchased a 1990 Regal Velocity 23 for a fixer upper project with some sentimental value.

Now, understanding that this “era” of the velocity isn’t the 90+ MPH 22’ relics of Steve Stepp or the luxurious Thoroughbred models of today, I was hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

I am removing a clapped out aftermarket 468 BBC from the boat and replacing with a factory stock 454/330 because I have one on a pallet fully dressed ready to go.

Anyone have any prop information for this setup? it has a 25p on there currently which I’ll pull off and stick on the shelf but I was thinking a 23P Mirage Plus may be the ticket?

I heard that the Regal variants were a bit more difficult to carry the bow on when running on the pad, I would assume the Mirage Plus would assist with that.

I think you are on the right path with your thinking and also if my memory is correct those hulls like Hydromotive Quad4 props too. Good luck.

I found my twin. Looks good. I have a question as I have the 91 velocity 23. My main use will not be top end but towing tubes and skiers. It currently has a 4 blade 24p. Does anyone have insight into best prop for my use case? Fuel efficiency wouldn't hurt either.
Has the original 454 and bravo one in it.

I had a 1989 Regal Velocity with the 454 carb motor. It was either a 24 or 25 pitch Mirage. Tried Hydromotive quad 4s but it ran better with the Mirage. It carried the bow better with the Mirage.

The 23 was my first go fast. Fun boat. I put Lightning headers on it and it ran right on 72 mph on a good day! I also took off the muffers when I put the headers on. With the side exit exhaust, it sounded BAD.
