Default Pop suggestion for Suzuki 300 on Parker 2520

Planning my repower of my Parker 2520 XL. Highly considering a suzuki 300. Pricing all of it to make final decision. What size prop do you recommend?

probably going to be a 16x17 maybe a 16x18.5. The dealer should correctly prop the boat and all the 3 blade suzuki props are the same money, a 4 blade would be a little more but your boat will not need that. I also do not charge additional for the 4 blade, if the boat should require it I just take care of it. Let me know if I can help you with a quote. Thanks mike

Hopefully the OP does not think i am highjacking but you did bring it up. Mike - what types of boats benefit from a 4 blade prop?

Every boat varies a little bit but the 4 blades can help with 3 and 4 engine boats, boats with steps or any boat prone to cavitation. Its not always a black and white answer. 80% of my repowers use 3 blades.
