I ran a 68'' water walker cypress series prop on my H2AD powered boat. it was snappy and eliminated torque roll.
previous prop was a wider blade that had crazy top end, but no snap and lots of torque roll, especially in deep water.

Hi fishnhunt80 ,

I'm sure you have purchased a propeller by now, and you did get all excellent suggestions here on SA for propeller options and choices.

For an O-320 4-Cyl aircraft engine I would recommend the following propeller options.

The 3-blade Excalibur in 66" to 70" diameter is the top choice for these engines to gain max thrust while not compromising on the light-weight, quick snap of the skinnier blade options (such as the Razor X). The Excalibur blade design was developed specifically for 4-cyl aircraft engine's power and operating RPMs. This allows for the perfect 3-blade propeller sized just right for a 4-cyl using the wider 5.5" Excalibur with its exclusive X-Core™ composite technology and military grade leading edge protection for performance and durability.

The other option would be the tried and true standard wide blade option using the 2-blade Whisper Tip Narrow in 66" to 70" diameter (for an O-320, I'd recommend 68" diameter).

Best to you!

^^^^ Patti knows her stuff. On a 10ft hull I would go as small as a 66" but a 68 would probably be the best bet so you have a good compromise of push and speed. Maybe. You just have to see what works for you and your boat. my O-320 angle valve conversion is swinging a 72" whisper tip narrow on the b mark (12.5 deg) at 2800 and goes anywhere I want but my cruise rpm isn't the best. So I would like to try a 68" and see what it does. All I can say is I bet it won't run the hill with 4 people anymore.
12' Cut Gilleo, Angle Valve 0-320, 72" Whisper Tip. Goes wherever I point it. :florida:

Patti is right on. I let a Excalibur go on a 10'6" with a 160. I kept a Q running a 160 on a 11" boat. The Excalibur is a much better prop and I regret not keeping it..
