Question Need new prop for Oday 27

I purchased an O'Day 27 last year and this will be her first year in the water. the owner told me that I would have to purchase a new prop because the one on the boat was rated for the old atomic 4 engine. Currently the boat was remanned with a 16HP Yanmar diesel. Top RPM is 3400 for the engine. Where can I find the appropriate prop for my boat? Any info would be appreciated

Thanks

you could approach any decent prop maker with your boat & engine stats, they should be able to cut a proper prop for you. the real question is how much are you willing to pay and whether you're looking for folding, feathering, 2 or 3 blades etc....

Two-blade props will generally cause less drag, but a three-blade prop will generally give significantly better performance. If you don't race, get a three-bladed prop.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
