Prop for Monterey

Randy,
I just bought a 1996 185 Monterey bow rider with 4.3L Merc. inboard. I am looking for a prop that will give me a good hole shot for water skiing and just a good all round prop and also increase my fuel economy. I was thinking to put a 19 pitch high 5 stainless? Any ideas?
Thanks,

Bob

 

Bob,

That is a great choice for the boat you have. It would be my first choice, actually. I cannot add much here as you have already done your homework.
