Prop for Vasseret

Randy,

      I bought a 1991 Vasseret last year with a 175hp mariner on a land and sea jackplate and so far I love this boat. Right now the boat has an average mercury aluminum 14X23 prop and it performs pretty good all around. I like to be able to pull a skier out of the water but also like to have my top end too. I was wondering if you might be able to recommend a better prop for me off the top of your head. If you could give me some advice on where I should set the motor when trying to reach top speed that would be great too.  Thanks for your time....................Dave

 

Dave, 

Try one of the new 24 or 25 small hub trophy plus props from Mercury. You will have one that does most everything.
