Welcome aboard and congrats on the new to you boat.

Are you happy with the current prop and does it achieve the proper WOT around 4600 - 4800 rpm?

If yes the drop by a pitch going to SS.

You can also try Mercruisers prop calculator for recommendations.

Note going to SS can cause greater damage to the drive if you strike an object as the SS will give less and the stress is transfers to the gears.

Thanks for getting reply
I have not used boat yet as in uk weather poor at the moment
The last owner of boat used it on a river with a 5 mph speed limit
so I think that's why it has a 15p prop
My last boat (19 sports boat with a 200 hp Mercury outboard had 3 blade S/Steel 23 p prop ) the boat was go for 62 mph on flat calm day
Just wondering if any one has the same boat
Cheers

Was interested to see what you ended up doing with your prop. Ours was on the way out when we bought it, so I know it needs replaced. We have the same set up on our 2300sc.
