Does anyone know the correct propeller size for the p-31? My 1989 has a 16 x 11. I'm getting a little vibration over 2000 rpm's, and I can't reach the max rpm of 3600. I'm also getting a little black soot at full throttle. The shaft and cutlass are new, and the alignment is near perfect. The prop and hull are clean. In reverse gear, at full throttle there is no vibration, and it goes right up to 3600 rpm. I read an article by Bill Shaw who said, he believed that the boat was originally fitted with a 15 x 11 prop. So, I'm wondering what other owners of the p-31 have on their boats. Confused

Thanks,
Don
