Correct propeller for 74 22’ dory

Post by Captbob626 » Fri Dec 29, 2017 9:31 pm

I recently acquired a 1974 Chris craft dory. It was repowered with a 350 mercruser 240 hp I believe. Does anyone have any idea what prop should be on this boat? What was on originally with a 307? What speeds can be expected?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Bob,
I found a web site, actually I was on a web site ordering a cutlass bearing and on this site "Deep Blue yacht supply" there is a link to a prop sizing service. You just tell them the particulars about the boat/engine etc and they will tell you the most probable diameter/pitch propeller. I thought that was pretty nice.
