There are a number of factors to be considered when determining prop size. Diameter is usually limited by the space available below the hull, and pitch is related to shaft RPM (among other things). In short, the biggest prop may not be the best. Look at some of the propeller manufacturers' websites, where they have lots of technical information to help you determine what might work for your boat.
