Default 03 31í jupiter twin 300ís prop size

Hey guys. My 31 jupiter has twin 300ís with 16x23 wheels on it right now which i know is too big. The motors are also on the lowest mark on the armstrong bracket.
With about 175 gallons and only myself and one passenger I'm hitting 5250 rpms at 42 knots and approx. 60% trim at WOT.
The boat will usually have a 4 man crew with gear, ice, and 250-300 gallons of fuel for the long haul trips. I do not want to over stress the motors and it is definitely sluggish out of the hole.
So, should i go for 21.5ís or try even smaller?
thanks in advance, CJ

Those props are way to big, I would drop down to 20's, this will get you closer to the 6000 rpm range where you want to be. You should be able to come up a hole or two as well with motor height from the sounds of. When up and running is the cavitation plate buried under water? Can you see it at all?

Thanks for the quick response. I figured they are too big. I havenít had the chance to see the cavitation plate yet. My guess is that they can also come up a hole. I donít want to worry about getting blow out in rough seas though. Do you think the 21.5 is still too big?
