Hi all, I'm not a new member but never posted here before.Some of you will recognize me from other forums as I continue on a restoration of a 1968 (hull #5) 23' Commander. As I near the completion of the mechanical phase I will soon be purchasing a prop. Originally the boat came with a 327F rated at 210Hp. I have had a new SBC built for this boat, A 350 warmed up to about 315Hp to stay within the safety guidelines of my V-drive's listed 300Hp rating. I have been in contact with Michigan Wheel and Acme and others for recommendations for diameter and pitch and cup, all of these resources have been very helpful but unfortunately they all conflict in small variants.For a baseline I thought it would be good information to know what prop this boat came with when equipped with the 427 which made an advertised 300Hp.
Does anyone know the diameter and pitch of the correct prop for this boat with the 427?
I didn't know they sold direct. I purchased my Acme props from Nettle Props in Texas, best price I could find. And they included a $50 coupon toward prop repairs.
It’s all in the wot rpm. What are you giving them for your desired wot rpm?
