I have a 13 inch, 6 pitch, RH 2 blade prop. It's easier to push our boat out of our slip than trying to use reverse. In reverse, I get a lot of prop walk to port before the boat starts moving. I've learned to use the prop walk to my advantage when I need to push the stern to port quickly. My prop is connected to a rebuilt Atomic 4 engine and pushes our boat at 5.5 knots before prop cavitation sets in.

Dcneuro, it's hard to say if it is an original prop from Bristol. I haven't come across any paperwork from the PO's indicating the prop was ever replaced. The prop is in good condition, but it's basic shape and poor performance would lead me to believe it is the original factory prop.
