Alex, Brian Raymond recommended me to go with the new oj 14.25 X 14 which I have installed.

Wow is all I can say. I think you will really like it. I put it on my ssv 22 and I can, Not that I do, run 2100lbs of ballast.

Thank You! But I still interesting Moomba's V-drive onwners opinion, beacouse I have reduced propeller's rpm at rate 1: 1,46, and I think I need propeller near 13,5 x 17,5.

I tested the OJ 13.7 pitch by 17.5. I hated it. If you are running ballast and fill you boat with people, that prop just does not cut it. I run a OJ 13 pitch by 15.5. And it has at least twice the hole shot.

It all depends on what you plan on using your boat for the most. With the 13.7 by 17.5 prop it was smoother and i could go faster. But when I filled my 1200lb ballast and got the boat full of people, it took soooo long to get the boat on plane, I ended up dumping the bags, and got my old prop back on fast.

Your situation may be different, but not very often do i go over 23 mph. I use my boat for nothing but wakeboarding and usually have a lot of people with, and a lot of ballast weight.
