I have an SUV on order and I would like to order a prop before I get the boat. The boat will have a 40 hp Tohatsu, jack plate, and trim tabs. I am looking for the best overall prop that will allow me to run shallow without blowing out. What are the props I should be looking at to start with?

Like you I have a H.B.  Waterman tunnel, 18' ,60 hp merc.
Jack Forman 3 blade prop (11 3/8 x 12p)  gets me 5500 rpm(exactly) and I can run a Bobs Jack plate on a 6 all day long. I sacrifice a little top end,but, nothing out their can get me across the open bay and back into where I go. Was your prop designed by Jack for that exact boat and tohatsu engine or was this a transfer from one engine to another? Something isn't right and that doesnt make sense!
