I am brand new to the site and brand new to being a Maxum owner. My family enjoys the lake very much and it is where my kids have grown up for the last 10 years. We needed a little more room than our Sea Ray 180 we have had so we now have the 2000SR3.
My question is more of a survey of what prop others in the group may be using on their 2000's or similar size boats. My kids are teens now and like to wakeboard, so I need a good all around prop. The guy that had the boat before me had placed a shiny prop (so it looks good)that from what I read may be too big of a diameter, but the only experience I have with this boat is the test drive when I bought it last month. So i will test more in the spring to see how it performs. The current prop is 15.25inch X 17 Pitch Mirage Plus. I think the pitch is probably ok, but I am thinking the 15.25 may be an RPM killer. Any thoughts? The boat has a 5.0L,220hp, with 1.47 outdrive.
Thanks in advance for any responses.
