    Bet you it will! If I recall i had the same stainless on my boat before destroying it. Consistent speed was always a trick. Was a little better with the 13.7x17.5 that replaced the stainless but PP was always talking to me in the corners. Didn't do that even once with the 1847 and I typically don't let it have much more throttle than it needs for PP to engage.

    Nice that's good to hear. I have been chasing problems with my PP and I am hoping that 90% of it was the prop.

    I had the stock OJ wakeboard prop and it was super noisy and i just put the 1847 on and the noise while greatly reduced is still there a little. The more weight in the boat the worse it is, I guess it is just cavitation or something??

    I dunno - the more weight I'm carrying I tend to make funny noises and growl too...

    Anybody else running this prop notice the boat porpoising alot more? I'm having to run front ballast to keep it from happening.

    No issues with mine, we have the same prop (1847) but my hull is different. So you can't adjust out the porpoising with the wake plate? It's got a ton more torque than the old 18 pitch you took off which can lift the nose higher but I'd have though the wakeplate could take care of it.

    I'm having some problems with the wake plate right now that I need to get worked out. I have been just filling the front ballast which helps but I can't run over 32 without an issue.

    Ak okay. Well I suspect if my wakeplate were out of commission I'd have the same issue, I run about 30 with the wakeplate around 1/2 up and it works great. If it is really smooth I can run about 3/4 wakeplate up but if I encounter wakes or windy chop I have to drop it down again to get it to settle in.
