I got a 214 Supersport from 2014, with the VolvoPenta 270 and SX drive. Reaching 45.0 knots with standard aluminum prop the boat was delivered with. Not sure what rpm's I got with it on WOT.
Got a small damage on that prop and changed for a 21" "standard" VP Stainless steel prop I easily could get hold of... Now (late season, I know but still) I get 43 knots at WOT 4500 rpm. Isn't that RPM a bit too low? What Stainless steel prop dimension should I go for? 3 blade or 4 blade?
I think I get a bit higher speed at cruising and also better hole shot, but WOT seems low, but I'm not sure... Help out please!!!
