Champion/225 HO Props

I was just wondering what props are available for a 225 HO.  I have a 223 Champion and it came stock with a 24 pitch prop.  The boat is only running about 69mph at 5700 rpms.  I do not want to get over 6000 rpms because they will not warranty my motor, they say.  But on the other hand I want as much speed as I can get.  I know I will need to adjust the jackplate accordingly but can you give me a starting point and maybe where to buy props.
Thanks, Mike from MS

 

Mike, 

Just about any V-6 prop can be adapted to your HO. Merc uses a removable hub to make the swaps easy. Their 25 or 26 trophy would be a good one to try. 69 in the 223 is nothing to be scoffed at. That is excellent for that big of a boat. Try any prop you can get that is in the 24- 26 pitch range. You may find a sweet prop that is faster. With so many possibilities the combos are almost endless though.
