    Is your stock a 13 x 13? What are your goals? More low end pull?

    Zegm who used to come on here and had your boat went to, I think, an ACME 13x12 4 blade and loved the results. I'm not sure you would see much difference with just a little bit of pitch difference. The "new" prop might have a little more top end and a little less low end pull because it is higher pitched. But, depending on the cupping of the two props the difference might not even be noticeable. Do you have a spare? You could swap and see what you like better and keep the other for a spare. Never hurts to pick up a cheap spare.

    The Acme 515 is the same diameter but has a half inch more pitch than your current prop. So you will have marginally less low end pull but a little more top end. I don't think you would feel the difference. If he is letting it go cheap, it might be wise to buy it to have a spare. There is not a lot of labor in swapping props, assuming you have a prop puller.

    Call Acme and OJ props (eric) and see what they recommend for your boat and tell them about your buying opportunity. They will both help you out

    Looks like your boat has a 1" shaft whereas the Acme 515 is for a 1-1/8" shaft so this would be a no go.
