Default 1997 Maxum 1900 3.0L - Prop Selection

Hi all! Newbie here, but excited to join the community! I purchased a 1997 Maxum 1900 a few months back and have been loving it! One of the blades of the prop came a with a bit of bend/crack at the tip. Functional, but I have to assume it's affecting performance. Anybody else have this boat/power setup and have some prop recs? Primary usage is low speed cruising with 4-6 people on board and some high speed runs across the lake. Would love any input or to hear about your experiences! Cheers!

Welcome aboard

Try using Mercruisers prop calculator to see what it recommends.

I have 2001 1800/3.0. I have 17, 19, and 21P props, all about 14 inch diameter. 17 is great for skiing with moderately loaded boat, and 21 is excellent for cruising. Each 2P of prop size changes my top speed around 8mph. Lower pitch planes quicker.
