I have tried a few different props now on my 1999 2100 SR with a 5.7L 4bbl engine and I just cant find one that I am happy with. I re-powered last year from a 5.0L w/ 1.62r to a 5.7L with 1.47r and now I just cant find the right prop. I am looking for an all around good prop that will give me great hole shot as well as good cruising performance without loosing too much on the top end. I have tried a Laser II 21p, Mirage 21p, & HR Titan 21p 3 blade. My max RPM's have been right where they should be around 4500, but none of those seem to hook up very well with the heavy load (5-8 people and coolers) that I sometimes run. Next I was going to try a Solas HR Titan 4 blade 19p in hopes that it will have a great hole shot without loosing to much on the top end. I use the boat on the Intercoastal waters near Clearwater, FL so I do encounter so pretty rough seas at times. The boat is close to 3800 lbs dry and the Maxum manual calls for a 21p Mirage prop with my motor which I already tried.
Anyways I was hoping that someone out there with the same boat may have already went through all of this already.. If anyone has already found the perfect prop that has a similar set up, I would greatly appreciate any advice!!
