Need help finding the right prop. I have a 1990 20' Hydra Sport Vector (Deep V) w/ a 1998 200 hp yamaha. Looking for a good all around prop... Dont need to have a hole shot, just looking for a good efficient cruising prop... Any advise would be great!!

Thanks,

John

13 or 14 inch 17 pitch. Look up Power Techs web sight and you will have an idea of what they recomend.
There are charts with various hulls or kinds of boats and the props that should go on them.

That advice from redfishr is as sound as it comes. A 17 pitch prop will usually get you out of the hole quick without over "reving" at WOT. Remember though....the heighth of the engine on the transom does make a difference. You want the anti cavitation plate about even with the general plane of the bottom of the boat. If you have a jack plate this is no big deal as you can move it as you drive while you look for your best result. A 20 foot boat with a 200 should fly. Be careful friend.
