Prop recommendation ?
I just got my new Sweetwater Premium 220 SL with TOTAL tri toon package and have been on the water 4 days and love it ! Since I am unfamiliar with the waters in my area, I was considering swapping out my SS prop that came with the boat for an Aluminum prop just in case I were to hit something. My SS prop. that came with the boat is a 3 blade, Mercury Marine Vengeance 48 16312 15P. First of all, is this the recommended prop for this boat ? Can you make a suggestion for a variation of this one in an Alum. and what the results might be with a variation of a 4 blade or a different size 3 blade ? A fair amount of the time, we will be pulling tubes and wakeboard with 6 people aboard.
The top speed with my current SS prop is about 38 mph max with 1 person on board at 5800 RPM but at 3800 RPM, I am only doing 20 or so.
