    What year is your boat? What is your horsepower and your drive gear ratio? I am assuming 1.50 for the drive?

    I would try a 19p or a 21p 3 blade.

    I have tried many different props on my 21 Bahner including the relatively new Mercury Enertia 22P (my Enertia is a great prop but I don't use it very much) I always go back to my Michigan Wheel Apollo 21P for everyday use. This prop does everything I want very well. Top speed with this prop is 61 on gps with 2 people 3/4 tanks and all my crap, but most of my time is spent in the 3K RPM range pulling toys and just cruising...very efficient prop and highly recommend.
