I just pulled off my prop and shipped it to OJ to see what magic they could do to eliminate the "Noise" that this prop and LSV's are known for. The prop was in great shape and did not need any repairs so I am hoping Eric can work some OJ magic and get rid of the noise while maintaining the pull that this prop size is known for. I will keep you posted on the results.

In the meantime I have a spare I bought off this board this winter and I plan to use it if we can get out. The spare is a 13.7 x 17.5 OJ.

Your spare 13.7 x 17.5 is the "stock" prop on my 08 LSV. Hole shot is slow when loaded heavy but it will run close to 44 mph top end. It will only turn up about 4700 RPM. BUT, for some reason the surf wake is incredible.

If OJ is successful, I'm sure many others including myself would be interested in pursuing this route.

I will post the results when I get it back and put it on the water. I should get it back towards the end of next week. As far as cost goes it is $50.00 to get the work done as long as the prop is in good shape. With UPS charges I will be into it about $90.00. If you are interested before I can post the results give Eric a call at OJ.

No offense to OJ but we just put on the Acme 14x14.5 and our boat runs a lot smoother and a lot less noise. Not sure why, just the way it worked out.

None taken. Anything over 14" in diameter on a newer LSV will make noise.

Thought I would chime in here on a similar situation, I also have the 14.25 x 14 OJ Prop and recently had it repaired to fix a ding in it and after reinstalling noticed an immediate change in the amount of noise. Much quieter and some what smoother feeling.

So did you have it cut down to 14"? Recupped? Or just repaired to original specs?

Just had it repaired to the original specs, no idea why it would make any difference but it did. The repair was only to one of the blades, it dented/partially tore if you can picture it. Took it to a local prop repair man and he fixed it right up.
