Two pieces of the puzzle I always like to have before making a prop req, is lake elevation of the lake you typically frequent and what is the current prop. Knowing the starting point helps gauge the degree of upgrade needed.

5600' and the 15x13 prop I have no problem with surf speeds fully loaded, did you opt for the more aggressive prop instead of stock?

Prop was upgraded to surf addition not sure what it is for sure .I live in ohio so elavation is not much of a factor.

My prop is a OJ 14.50 by 14.25 what are some good upgrade options .

A 14.5 D x 14.25 P is a very solid performing prop. Going down to a 13.75 P like the ACME 1615 would be a step up in aggressiveness. However, id measure to hull and the trailer prop guard to see if a 15 D will fit. The added surface area from the increase in diameter helps offset the RPM increase that comes with a drop in pitch only.

I had the 15x12 on my last boat I owned and it changed to a whole new boat. Full ballast, people, gas and jumped on plane while keeping the RPM's in check.
