The "standard" prop for years was an 13 x 13. It would allow a max RPM of 5,000 and top end around 42 mph (with some variation depending on weight and trim). You should have a little more hole shot and a little less top end. You might achieve a slightly higher RPM at WOT. I think your boat is supposed to max at 5,000 RPM. You can check your RPM and MPH at WOT and see what you get.

Contact OJ Props or Acme Props. Their reps are very good at telling the benefits of various props, especially for a DD boat that has been around for a while.
