I have a 1986 22' islander with a 205 mercruiser. Recently I introduced my prop to some rocks. Yes stupid i know, and they didnt seem to get along very well either. Anyways according to the number on the prop it is a 14 inch, 19 pitch prop. Can anybody give me suugestions as to if this is the best prop to stick with for this boat. I have wondered this before in the past now have no choice but to buy a new prop so figured might as well make sure im getting the corrrect one. According to the book, WOT rpm is suppose to be around 4800, however if i open it up all the way, it seems to cut out, almost like its floating valves or something. I have just installed new gauges, possible the tach is off a little, but feel it is really close. Hour guage reads 320 hrs and believe this to be right. Motor looks and runs like new. Oil stays so clean even after running for several days, still have a hard time reading it on the dipstick. Anyways, if i push her up to 4200, she runs great and is running about 35-38 mph. So long story short, do i stick with the prop that was on it or anybody have suggestions on a better prop?
