I have a 1985 Rick Bitz runner botton V-drive that I have been restoring over the past three years, now that I am done, I need to select a prop and need some help from the experts. I need to slect a 2-blade prop and have an attached picture and some data below.
Boat weight: 2040 lbs. w/fuel
V-drive: Casale 10 Degree In & Out ( no Trans)
Gear Ratio: 1.29 w/ whirlaway
Prop Shaft: 1 inch
Motor: Blown 540 running 8lbs. boost and making est. 1000hp
Boat use: mostly lake use would like tobe in the mid to high top end
I was thinking about as a starting point a prop 11.5 X 15, but will rely on your vast experience before ordering one. If you need any other information I will gladly get it to you.
Thanks your help will be greatly appreciated.
