Welcome aboard

What outdrive, Alpha?

I recommend using quicksilver prop calculator. Also if going to SS there is more risk to the drive if you hit something. Being a cruiser I would not worry about holeshot that the SS would improve on.

That was the standard drive. My 1997 2400 has a Bravo II.

Anyhow try seeing what the prop calculator recommends. Several parameters are required, the better you provide inputs the better the results.
