Prop question: size & blades
Every time I look up 'prop selection' on the web or this forum I come away with even more questions. At this point, I'm wondering if I can pick up these 2 props without test-driving, checking RPMs, engine temp, etc.
A 3-blade backup prop (which I currently have) and a 4-blade prop to quickly get kids up on skis or wakeboards if I have a full boat. Thinking aluminum or composite because of stainless price.
Boat is '98 Maxum SRL 1900, 18.5' long, Mercruiser (Alpha One) 4-cyl.
