Prop selection for 2017 SS 201 I/O
hello all, my wife and I just received our ordered 2017 SS 201 I/O with the 4.5 200hp mercruiser. This is our first boat as we came from a 22' pontoon with a 40hp mercy Bigfoot on it. Got it on the water last Saturday and took it out cruising for a couple hours. With just the 2 of us on it it seemed to get up fine and had plenty of speed. Then on Sunday we had family over and took it out for a cruise. We had 6 adults and 3 smaller kids on board and when we first took off I didn't think I was going to be able to get the boat to plane.
so yesterday I called the local prop shop and told him what I had. He laughed when I told him the boat came with a 14/23 pitch prop. Said that it had to be a dog out of the hole with that. After some conversation I ended up ordering a solas 14.3 / 19 pitch 4 blade prop. I would like some feedback from anyone with a similar boat and what props they have gone with. I don't care about top end speed I just want really good acceleration and mid range speed and handling. Thanks
