Default The Right Prop

I am just finishing up a Crapshooter Outrigger. It is a"New Old" kit. ( Never finished but built at least 10 years ago ) It was originally intended for a .67 marine engine, but I have managed to stuff a Webra Speed Marine .91 in it. The hull came with a properly offset solid 3/16 drive shaft supported by 5 needle bearings in a brass stuffing box. The question is........ What size prop? Two or three bladed, will make this beauty come alive? If anyone has built a Crapshooter of this type, I could benefit from some of your insight.

Boy, I've never worked with anything that big. One site to try is www.intlwaters.com . The original builder of this kit comes in on occasion. Andy Brown just joined up in there and he could probably be of help.
