Prop question on a 242 ss 454 330 hp
I have a 242 SS 1988 with a standard 454 330 HP 1997
GenV. The prop is a Mirage Pluss 17, I know the prop
is to "small"
Ex.:
3200 rpm my speed is 28 miles
My rpm is much higer then it is supposed to be, but I have
never taken it higer then 4500 then I get aprox 4243 miles.
I have a lot more throttle to give but, I havent let the engine
gone over the 4500 rpm.
I am going to buy a new propp, but I am not sure what kind of
prop either mirage P19, mirage P21 or bravo1 4 blade 20
My normal boating is 24 people some gear, I am not to stressed by top speed, but of course everybody want his boat
to go as fast as possible.
I would like it not to be to slow to plane, and have a good midrange preformance.
So what should I go for??
