Default Worldcat 320ec prop questions

Boat is powered with 250 suzuki 4 strokes. Existing prop is 3 blade 16x20. Rpm maxes out at 5200. Was looking at going down to 16x18.5. Anyone running these.

You look to be somewhat underpowered. 2x250 is the standard setup for WC 290/295 and those are quite a bit lighter than your boat. I believe that 3x16x20 is the default factory prop on the 290/295s.

With the Zukes you really want to see 6000 rpm at WOT, so if you are now at 5200 I would probably start with 17 pitch.
