Just got off the phone with my dealer about the prop issues i have been having with my 11' LSV. Talked with the service dept. and they are going to have a Acme 1433 AND a Acme 1161 for me to pick the one i want! So any one running a 1161?? I do mainly knee-boarding, wake boarding, surfing and an occasional slalom run. i am leaning towards the 1433. So how much speed am i going to lose top end and will the fuel burn be greater with the 1433?

What size prop are you running now? I had the stock OJ 455 and went to the ACME 1847 as others on the forum have done and it made a world of difference in the boats performance (better hole shot, smoother operation and very little loss of top end (-2 MPH). We do pretty much the same as you from wake surfing to slolam skiing. If you can I would check out AL's prop comparison chart here http://moomba.com/msgboard/showthrea...p+test+results2006 Mobius LSV 325 hp MPI Indmar

How much ballast do you run while wakeboarding and how many people do you typically have on the boat? The 1161/537 is great with stock ballast and 4-6 people on the boat. If you run more than stock ballast and often have 6+ people on the boat, I would go with the 1433/1847. I had the 537 for a while which was a huge improvement over the stock OJ, but with about 1400#'s of ballast and 6+ adults on the boat, it struggled a bit to get up on plane. So I switched to the 1847 and have had no issues planing out with a boat ful of people and the ballast full.
Below is a link to my prop test post that Grant is referring to. I think you will find the data there that you need to decide which prop is best for you.

Hey cab, how's the fuel consumption with the 1847, have you noticed much difference?2010 LSV

My fuel consumption actually improved a bit when I went from the stock OJ to the lower pitched 537 so I think the engine was working harder with the stock prop especially when surfing.Al

I have the 1161 and swapped it for the wakeboard prop......it gave me 3 more mph top end and I have not noticed a difference with 1500lbs when we wakesurf or 2100 lbs wakeboarding. I am a happy camper.....even tho I don't camp anymore09 21v LAUNCH
