Hello All,
I damaged my prop last week. It is a stock prop that comes with the 09 OBV. I had to blow out of town before I could get under and try to find the data on it. Anyone know the stock size of the prop and LH or RH rotation? Anyone have one for sale that is stock for our boat. Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Spoon

Spoon,

I'll try and dig up the prop test info to be sure, but I think you want the ACME 1433. Maybe somebody else can confirm?

Very Very Close and probably wouldn't notice much difference. But, I had my wife crawl under there and snap a few photos for me. (Now, that's a good wife). It's the OJ #466 !4.25 x 14 LH. Anyone have any recommendation between the differences. I slalom and surf.

The biggest difference is you will get rid of that awful growl.

I had the dealer take off the OJ and put on the ACME due to this. Many others on here have done the same.

It worked fine for recreational and kid slalom skiers and great for surfing my '08 OBV with 750 in the locker, 370 under port seat and stock center.

spoon, check this thread out:

looks like ACME 1847 is popular, too.

You'd love the 1433 surfing and wakeboarding, but at slalom speeds your engine RPM will be quite high. Max speed is 36-37 on my LSV with a the 1433. The 1847 would be a good one to consider. You should give Wakemakers or JT at Nettle Props a call and get their take.

Yea, the 537 and 1161 are good compromises if you need to keep top end.

Went with the Acme 1847 base on recommendations here and from Spencer at Wakemakers. I highly recommend them. He and Bryan were great to work with. Now just gotta wait for it to get in and install.

Cheers,
