Prop for VooDoo

My son has a Voodoo mini with an old Merc 35hp. I plan on replacing the motor this spring with a Merc 40 hp, Four Stroke EFI. What would you recommend for the propeller type/size to get an optimum performance from this boat. 

Thank for your help,
Steve Hawkins

Steve, 

I would try the 35 hp prop first. It will be closer than you think. Then verify the rpm for final sizing.
