CSY 33 prop

Hey there; a few months ago I bought a 33 CSY with a W 30 Westerbeke. I believe she is under powered and under proped. Can't change the engine right now and am looking for advice on the prop. I am in the Bahamas right now on another boat, and don't have the shaft size with me. What I'm looking for is what size and pitch would push this boat. The little 3 blade on there can't handle the job. Can't afford a Max prop. thanks; Easy

Missed this when posted.

I believe the web site for Michigan Wheels has a prop calculator. Otherwise any decent prop shop will have the software to calculate a likely prop for you.

You might ask on the CSY Owners web site: CSY Owners' Forums - Index

What is your boat's name and hull #?

FWIW I have a Perkins 4-108 and a 16R10 3 blade prop.
