    Trying to find a starting point for a prop. Didn't want to buy one and it not be right. Heard these were hard to prop, come to find out. It is a 2008.

    Contact the hull manufacturer and ask their recommendation.

    Start with a 3 blade 17p powertec. Thats the most common prop that I run. Works great with 3 people on the Lostman.

    It's either a 14.5" or 15" 17p SS prop. I can't locate it on the ptprop.com But if you go to a prop shop they will be able to help you out.
