need advice on prop for vw airboat

Post by Anisoptera »

i just purchased an airboat that is vw powered, nothing special probably about 50 hp. it had an ill fitted and improperly cut down carbon fiber prop which i shredded at around 5000 RPM! now i need to replace. Can handle up to 64" diameter. Hull is 12 foot fiberglass. i would love some advice about what kind of prop, pitch, materials, RPM limits, etc that i should be using. i don't need to go fast but i do want to be able to get up on plane. I'm a complete novice to all airboating. Thanks in advance. oh yeah, the hub holding the prop on is 4" diameter and 6 bolt. The engine is set up to be direct drive to the prop.
