  • Correct Prop for a Ski Nautique

    Okay I know it's a mastercraft forum but I own a mastercraft so who cares. Lol

    Got the ski nautique with a 351 and 1:1 tranny. Need a better prop. Acme suggest the 540 3 blade and OJ suggested the following 2 props leaning towards the 4 blade. XMP 13x11 3 blade and XMP 13x13 4 blade.

    I know people on here have had these boats or used these props. I need feed back. Pulling a skier up that weighs 205 is a but tough at the moment.

          Nice boat. I'd ski behind it too, and wouldn't be surprised if it skied better than my 197.

          I've had a Stingray with a 4 cylinder that had trouble pulling up a 205 lb. skier, but I never thought someone with an inboard ski boat have would have such a problem.

          Sorry, I have nothing useful to add to this thread.

            Thanks, there's a thread about this boat when it was in the purchasing phase. It was a deal for sure.

              I weigh around 240 at the moment (sympathy weight for a pregnant wife ) and have the stock 13x13 4-blade and Predator engine, and it gets me up just fine if the driver knows how to work the throttle right.

                I can't answer your question, but I do like the boat.

                  It's interesting that Acme recommends a three blade prop with 12" pitch, and OJ goes with 13".

                  I think a classic boat like that needs a classic prop to push it. A 13x13 three blade prop would be ideal, and I have one for sale. Perfect!

                    It's right hand rotation, don't forget that part.

                      Details, details. Just shift it into reverse to go forward. LOL!

                      It's interesting that MC uses a 351 with velvet drive w LH rotation, CC uses the same powertrainand the prop turns the other direction. Slightly different tranny? Does the engine spin the other direction?

                        Acme 541 is the go to prop on this boat. Look at easties' prop comparison right up.

                            Where is his write up? So why is the 541 preferred over 540?

                              Acme 422 most likely. There's also a 3 blade that people like, but the 422 is a gem. Use the PN discount for 25% off on that prop through Delta Props. Congrats on the boat. Those old euro backs track and ski well.

                              To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
