Thread: Prop decision help

  1. #1
    ok..this is my first post and i was looking for some help.
    i have a 2004 chap. sunesta 236 deckboat with a 5.0 Merc. and Alpha sterndrive.
    my goals out of the boat are to pull skiers, tubers, etc but also cruising.
    stock prop is on there now and i believe its an 18 degree and it just doesnt feel like it gets on place fast enough or pulls very hard and i was told that the prop degree makes a huge difference in performance.
    any help is apreciated.
