Default HIGH 5 prop for 1800 SR3 ?

Just bought a 4.3L (carb) SR3.
It's going to be a big step down in performance to what I'm used to ... previous o/b eighteen footer weighed in at 408Kg (918Lb) less and had a 200Hp o/b.

But all out top end speed is not what I am after, it will be used in the main for recreational water-skiing, knee-boarding, wake-boarding & general fun runabout.

Been told that to get good 'low down pull' ... I should put a High 5 prop on this Maxum.
What is the recommended pitch to go with ?
