    Guys, I have a 1998 Nitro 700LX and need to replace the prop on it. Looks like the old one is a Black Diamond Quick Silver 12 3/4 21P. The part number is 2040 21P Quicksilver. The boat is slow coming out of the hole and sort of difficult to come up on plane because of it. I was thinking of going with a Mercury Black Max Sport Series 13 19P to get me out of the hole a little faster. I understand it will affect my overall performance speed wise. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Take a look at my earlier remarks on this site about the use of the SE SPORT 300 Hydrofoil. This is likely a qiuick and inexpensive solution. This way you wouldn't have to give up your top end speed.

    I did add a hydrofoil to it and it did it improve it. I can actually use the boat now.....lol.....but still very sluggish coming onto plane....

    I wasn't really asking for a blessing for the brand but more about the size/pitch change of the propeller....

    Don you have a propeller shop near you? In Norfolk Va we have Murphys Prop Shop and you can buy a 19P to try out. If the result is not what you desire you can bring it back and trade for a 18p or 17p until satisfied. Of course these are refurbished aluminum props or you can get a Stainless one there also.
